When most people think of the Iowa farm, they picture corn, beans, hogs and beef. However, small farming operations that once grew these four cash crops and livestock cannot compete with the larger, often corporate production units. Many family farms look for ways to continue their way of life and earn a living raising a variety of crops and farm animals and selling their products locally.

Videos, photographs, artifacts, and ephemera will enhance the story, while a hands-on “Little Farmer” area will give kids opportunity to learn what farming in Iowa is like.
