The farm works with scientists and industry partners to create farm demonstrations and research trials evaluating new technologies, farming methods or equipment so producers can adopt the most beneficial practices. What makes Stiles Farm unique is our outreach and education efforts all happen on a commercially viable farm operation. The farm has to be profitable to survive and is faced with many of the same challenges as other dryland farms in the Texas Blacklands. This provides Stiles Farm a grassroots platform for promoting research driven agricultural practices.
