About Us

What is Farmamerica?

The Minnesota Agricultural Interpretive Center (Farmamerica) was established by the Minnesota legislature in 1978 to preserve the state's rich agricultural heritage. We started with a few acres, donated by Roy & Marcie Lukken in the late 1970s, and with the help of the local community, legislators and contributors, built the center into a 360-acre site which includes a visitor center, a pond and prairie restoration, many external historical buildings, plus a large collection of antique tractors and farm equipment. 


Vision & Mission: Farmamerica exists to connect people with agriculture by being Minnesota's center for agricultural interpretation. 

Our primary focus has always been education. It is important to us that we inform people about our rural history and how farms in Minnesota continue to provide food, fiber, and renewable fuel for our communities in a more sustainable manner than ever before.

Research shows that 90% of kids living in rural areas today have never had a farming or agricultural experience. Farmamerica hopes to help change that.
