The Center for Agricultural Resilience (CFAR) was built to educate thought leaders on the environmental, economic and social benefits of building resilient animal, plant and human ecosystems that can nourish our communities. Our hope is to show these leaders how to rethink agriculture, using White Oak Pastures' 25 year long production journey as a guide. The goal is to make resilient agriculture more replicable not more scalable. It is not our intention to provide a "how to" course to recreate the White Oak Pastures model. The context for each piece of land, each farm and each community will vary from ecosystem to ecosystem. So instead, the CFAR mission is to inspire a rethinking of the system by demonstrating what has been actually accomplished and scaled on a working farm, on a realistic budget, by real world business people.
