On Fri., Aug. 2, 2019, Discovery Park of America announced that it will open an exhibit dedicated to telling the story of innovation in agriculture. On hand for the announcement was Representative Bill Sanderson who is the founder of White Squirrel Winery in Kenton, Tenn. and Congressman David Kustoff who represents Tennessee’s 8th congressional district.

A mind-blowing, myth-busting farming exhibit that will change the world.

On Oct. 22, 2020, Discovery Park of America, a 50-acre heritage park and 100,000-square-foot museum located in the Mid-south region of the United States, will open an exciting new experience in the organization’s 8,900-square-foot Agriculture Center.

While most in the agriculture industry strive to make the best use of resources to meet the demands of a growing population, falsehoods and misinformation continue to flourish in a world where fiction and propaganda can be spread with the click of a mouse on a computer or the touch of a finger on a mobile device.

“AgriCulture: Innovating for Our Survival” will tell the story of farming innovation in the past, present—and especially—future in a fun and interactive way. Visitors of all ages will gain an understanding of how food and fiber get from the farm to the family, and the role technological, scientific and genetic innovation in agriculture plays in society and culture around the world.
