Graves Chapple Gift Fund

Graves Farm was established in 1988 as a collaborative effort between Atchison County Extension, Holt County Extension, University of Missouri Extension Commercial Agriculture Program, the University of Missouri’s Agricultural Experiment Station, local agribusinesses and local producers. The farm was renamed in August of 2003 to add the name of Robert Chapple whose hard work and diligence helped the farm become a center of excellence in the NW region. The goal of work on the collective 98-acre leased farms is to implement applied research, demonstrate management practices for crop production, and evaluate new and sustainable crop production practices. The farm strives to perfect practices that will maintain or increase the profitability for area crop producers. Graves-Chapple Farm is vital to the northwest region in sharing education and research not only with producers, but with the community and youth. Please consider a gift that will help ensure the prominence of this farm in the community.
