West and East Badger Farms

West and East Badger Farms house the agronomic crop studies and include about 51 acres of organic land, with an additional 6 acres in transition to organic. The farms are located on opposite sides of Apple Creek Road between Apple Creek and Wooster. West Badger Farm is the site of a decommissioned swine unit. As a result of years of swine manure application, P and K levels are high in some fields. Since synthetic fertilizers and pesticides were once used at this site, the farm is ideal for addressing questions about transitioning from conventional to organic production.
