The KKAC Organization was founded by the Peer Farm Group (Wilbur Peer, Sr., Andre Peer, Rickey Peer, Alvin Peer, Sr., and Edgar Peer, Jr.) in 2015 , with a purpose of educating minority youth about production agriculture and agriculture business.
During a minority youth tour of one of the farms the Peer Farm Group owns in Lee and Phillips County, AR, when asked "Where do string beans come from?," a young lady replied "Out of a can!" The Group recognized the lack of agricultural knowledge and understanding in the younger generations. This inspired the Group to begin filling this gap and opening the youth's minds to a wealth of knowledge to sustain generations to come; thus creating The KKAC Organization.
In its swift expansion, KKAC also conducts outreach to minority farmers, ranchers, and landowners on estate planning, land management, heirs'property issues, and wealth building opportunities through USDA-NRCS programs.
The KKAC Organization is a non-profit corporation that operates under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code.
