A working dairy farm until 1978, the park still grows demonstration crops as part of its educational mission to cultivate respect and understanding for earth's natural resources. The park offers scheduled naturalist programs, wagon rides, and public events. Camping for GROUPS ONLY. The fees are $2 person plus a $45 refundable damage deposit.
