Located in Southeast Iowa, Red Fern Farm is a family owned nursery and farm run by Tom Wahl and Kathy Dice. It is also the site of ongoing research on a variety of tree crops.
We offer a variety of trees and advice on their planting and care. We would be happy to answer your questions, on your dime. To visit our nursery, research project, or to pick up trees, please call ahead to schedule an appointment.
For several years we played around with pasture raised chickens, turkeys and meat goats. Presently we are limiting ourselves to nut and berry crops.
We have been written up in a few newsletters, magazines and newspapers.
One of our goals is to promote sustainable agriculture. We are pretty passionate about the role of trees in this. Tom has lectured about his study and the use of tree crops. If you are interested in using him for a speaker, give us a call.
