Agriculture Education

Discovery Barns

Agriculture education is an area of focus we utilize to help increase the communication between the farmer and the consumer. The Pipestone Discovery Barns serve as agricultural learning opportunities in 9 different county and state fairs in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota. Highlights of Discovery Barns include: sows giving birth, wean piglets, chickens laying eggs, chicks hatching, dairy calves, cow milking demonstrations and many static educational displays.

Washington Pavilion- “Grow It!”

PIPESTONE is proud to sponsor the Pipestone Marketplace where they can stock the shelves straight from the crop field next door, shop and checkout with some delicious bacon.
