A pint sized interactive farm!
new interactive exhibit is another piece of the Fair’s continued
efforts to provide educational, yet fun, opportunities for Fair guests
to experience the different components of agriculture.
Hands on the Farm has transformed Baker Park into a kid-sized farm,
complete with barns, gardens, and animals! This hands-on experience will
have children participating in various farm “chores” from milking a
cow, to driving a tractor.
This experience is geared towards children ages 2-10.
