In this award-winning exhibit, children will begin to understand the agriculture connection from Farm to the Grocery Store as they become the "Little Hands on the Farm." It is a favorite destination for children ages 2-10.
What will kids do on the farm?
At the Start Barn, you begin your "visit" to the farm. Put on your apron, grab a basket, we have many products to "harvest".
Our first stop is the real grain silo. Collect some feed for the animals. Put it in your basket and head for the Hog Barn.
Hog Barn - Sponsored by Utah Pork Producers
Take the feed that you picked up in the grain silo and put it into the pig's feed trough. While you're there, learn a little bit more about the most intelligent of our domestic animals, pigs!
Dairy Barn - Sponsored by Dairy West
Then take a turn and milk the cow. On your way to the Farmers Market, grab a carton of milk and add it to your basket.
Pick an apple from the tree and put it in your basket.
Here you can "plant" a seed on one side and "dig" up a vegetable on the other.
Groom the sheep and take a piece of wool for your basket.
Tractor Loop - Sponsored by Tractor Supply
Fill up your tractor with fuel then circle the loop to check on your farm.
Gather an egg from one of the many chickens on the farm.

At the Farmers Market, you can drop off each item that you harvested on your visit to the farm. Place each item into separately marked bins. Then return your basket. The store clerk will buy your harvest items for Little Hands on the Farm "Money". Now head over to the Grocery Store and spend your earnings!
Here you can purchase a real agricultural product such as milk, an apple, granola bar, or other product.
