TTU Shipley Organic Research Farm

Cookeville, Tennessee

We are a relatively new organic research and demonstration farm that seeks to promote a return to family farming, development of a local food economy, and use of organic and sustainable methods. We train students, encourage and support new growers and help established growers transition to a more sustainable operation. Our current research efforts are season extension, soil responses to compost treatments, and managed ecosystem development. We also are working to develop whole farm system methods to study disease and insect control under our management and research operation. We are advocates of numerous small enterprises that help farmers to have a steady income stream throughout the year. We are growing shitake mushrooms, sweet sorghum syrup, out of season strawberries, winter salad production in tunnels as well as seasonal veegtable production.
