Here is a part of EKU rarely seen by the masses, Meadowbrook Farm. I was invited, last week, to spend few hours on the farm with some members of the Ag Club and a couple of faculty members in the Department of Agriculture. In spite of the heat (and the smell... don't tell them I mentioned that) this crew was lively and fun to be around. Though some of the gentlemen weren't keen on being photographed I think we eventually conquered that discomfort through systematic desensitization... AKA, camera in the face over an extended period of time. Information below was taken from: http://www.farms.eku.edu/ Meadowbrook Farm was established by Eastern Kentucky University in 1974 for the purpose of providing practical experience for the students studying agriculture or related subjects while serving as a learning resource for the general agriculture community. It is a teaching laboratory that supports academic programs within the EKU Department of Agriculture and also provides outreach to the community. Students and visitors have a unique opportunity for hands-on experiences and to observe practical applications of agricultural practices. The farm consists of 720 acres of gently rolling land suitable for various livestock and crop enterprises.
