The region’s agricultural industry is traced to the earliest pioneers who raised dairy cattle, produced butter and cheese, and grew potatoes and grain here.

The early farmers and ranchers were necessarily innovative and hard working. Their successes and failures are woven into the dynamic and diverse local industry of today.

The focal point of this exhibit is a circa 1920 Iron Age potato planter that seeded many local harvests.
