"Busby Farm serves Lincoln University Cooperative Research (LUCR) by demonstrating and researching organic, integrated and sustainable ways to farm." It is one of the largest organic research farms in the United States.
The program offers classes that focus on skills needed to run a local farm, annual workshops and educational events. The on-farm apprenticeship program focuses on sustainable, small and mid-scale production. Growing Growers is a collaborative effort between the Kansas State University Research and Extension, University of Missouri Extension, Lincoln University, Kansas Food Circle, Kansas Rural Center, Cultivate Kansas City, and the Kansas Rural Center.
