NTCC Demonstration & Research Farm

Over the years, the NTCC farm has grown in size until today it consists of approximately 250 acres of primarily improved Bermuda pasture and hay meadows. For the last 15 years the program (and the Farm) has primarily focused on beef cattle managed as a cow-calf operation (initially Santa Gertrudis but today Black Angus). As the NTCC Agriculture Program has expanded, the farm operation has become more diversified and a shift to more sustainable agriculture practices began. In spring of 2011 the Eagle Eye Demonstration Garden and greenhouse were established and they continue to evolve into a viable part of farm operations. Additionally, the overall mission of the farm has changed to demonstrate and promote more sustainable agriculture practices including organic vegetable production, management of soil health utilizing cover cropping, no-till techniques, and rain water harvesting all with a primary focus on conserving and renewing natural resources on the farm.
