This child-friendly exhibition reveals that most of the food we eat comes from a farm and allows visitors to lend a hand around the farm.
- A Play Area, featuring an oversize, climb-on pizza that connects familiar pizza ingredients with plants grown on a farm. The pizza garden includes tomatoes, herbs, garlic, onions, green peppers, and wheat. Note: Open weather permitting.
- The Barn gives visitors a view into how animals are housed and cared for.
- Goat and Miniature Donkey Yards, where visitors are able to touch the animals through the fence. The area also includes a Caring Corral, where children are invited inside to help take care of the animals.
- The Cow Pasture, where visitors are able to touch the animals when they approach the fence.
