The Dakota Lakes Research Farm's primary goal is to identify, research, and demonstrate methods of strengthening and stabilizing the agriculture economy. The research enterprise at the farm is operated by South Dakota State University. The not-for-profit Dakota Lakes Research Farm Corporation manages the production enterprise and owns the land, the fixed facilities, and much of the field equipment. We work with Mother Nature to ensure our land is protected, fertile and produces yields to feed the world for many generations to come. This practice results in maintaining and encouraging living soils, clean water, healthy foods and ample wildlife.
