About The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame
Agriculture touches the lives of every living person. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the way of life that developed the values, economy, and culture of our nation all find root in agriculture. Yet, today, few people understand or appreciate agriculture as the dynamic and pervasive force that has shaped our nation's past and that will shape the world's future.
To awaken people to the importance of agriculture and help them understand and appreciate its influence, agribusiness leaders of the 1950's, in Kansas City and throughout the country, envisioned the creation of the nation's premier center for agriculture. To this end, the focus of the proposed institution would be the American farmer and farming and would include not only the rural heritage which has been so influential in shaping America, but also the science and technology of farming that are shaping our world of tomorrow.
