The Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center is a state-of-the-art, interactive agricultural education center located in Manitowoc County. Farm Wisconsin connects visitors’ curiosity to the wonder of Wisconsin farming and provides guests with a better understanding of their food sources and their importance. The center features 10,000 square feet of hands-on learning opportunities, and a birthing barn where visitors may watch calves being born daily. The center was named to Time for Kids’ World’s 50 Coolest Places of 2019.
Farm Wisconsin observes mask and social distancing requirements for employees and guests, and hand sanitizer is widely available throughout the facility. Additional sanitation practices are also in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The 29,000 square-foot facility creates natural distancing, but Farm Wisconsin also utilizes an open plenum HVAC system and economizers to circulate fresh air.
