The historic agriculture building is an agriculture showcase for visitors. With a layout that welcomes audiences to come in and explore, fairgoers will have an opportunity to meet, interact and learn about the industry which drives our state's economy. Farmers, ranchers and commodity group representatives will be on site throughout much of the Fair.

Inviting Layout:
The open floor plan focuses on guiding fairgoer traffic, while pulling Missouri's agriculture groups together into one centralized location.

United Promotion:
The agriculture building allows Missouri agriculture to unite within a roughly 6,250 square foot area and promote all segments of the industry.

Interactive Displays:
Several interactive agriculture displays are set up within the building to give fairgoers hands-on interaction with Missouri agriculture. Snap a family photo in front of a beautiful farmscape backdrop, grab a seat in the grain bin or take your turn answering the Missouri agriculture trivia questions scattered around the building.

Consumer Outreach:
The agriculture building brings to the forefront Missouri’s farmers and ranchers, and the products they raise each day. We hope to allow those not directly tied to agriculture the opportunity to interact directly with Missouri’s agriculture leaders.
