Kansas Rural Center

The Kansas Rural Center, Inc. (KRC) is a non-profit organization that promotes the long-term health of the land and its people through community-based research, education, and advocacy. KRC cultivates grassroots support for public policies and practices that strengthen communities, advance a more sustainable farm and food system, and encourage stewardship of Kansas ecosystems.


Our Mission: To promote the long-term health of the land and its people through research, education and advocacy that advance an economically viable, ecologically sound, and socially just food and farming system.
From its earliest days, the Kansas Rural Center has provided research, education and advocacy to empower Kansans who care about the environment and natural resources, family farms, and communities both rural and urban.  Through educational events and workshops, field days, farm tours, and publications, KRC helps farmers and ranchers identify and implement ecologically based farming practices and helps grow a local and regional food system to increase opportunities in farming as well as provide healthy food.  KRC also monitors state and federal farm and food policy development and programs to inform and engage the public in public policy decision-making.
