Little Hands on the Farm

In this award-winning exhibit, children become farmers for a day. By participating in fun, hands-on activities, kids begin to understand the agriculture connection from Farm to Grocery Store.

It is a favorite destination for children ages 2-10.

Little Hands on the Farm is managed daily by Utah FFA Chapters from all over the state.

exhibit closes at 8pm nightly.

What will kids do on the farm?

Start Barn

At the Start Barn, you begin your "visit" to the farm. Put on your apron, grab a basket, we have many products to "harvest".

Grain Silo

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.

Orchard - Sponsored by Utah Apple Marketing Board

Pick an apple from the tree and put it in your basket.

The Garden

Here you can "plant" a seed on one side and "dig" up a vegetable on the other.

Sheep Barn

Groom the sheep and take a piece of wool for your basket.

Tractor Loop

Fill up your tractor with fuel then circle the loop to check on your farm.

Chicken Coop

Gather an egg from one of the many chickens on the farm.

Farmers Market - sponsored by Utah's Own

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!

Grocery Store

Here you can use all your hard earned money from working on the farm to purchase a real agricultural product such as milk, an apple, granola bar, or other product.
