Living History Farms
11121 Hickman Rd
Urbandale, IA 50322 United States

** Rescheduled to June 1 due to weather. **

Though one of the most common crops in Iowa fields today, soybeans were just being introduced to midwest farmers as an experimental crop in the early 1900s. Come help plant a small test plot of beans on the 1900 Farm and learn about the rise of the crop as the 20th century progressed. The planting activity is included in regular admission to Living History Farms and will occur at the 1900 Farm, from 10 am to noon.
