Red Fern Farm is a family owned farm, located in southeast Iowa, run and owned by Tom Wahl and Kathy Dice. It is the site of ongoing research on a variety of tree crops and forest farming systems.

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.
