The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame was chartered by Congress in 1960 to serve as the national museum of agriculture and a memorial to farming leaders. Our mission is to educate society on the historical and present value of American agriculture and to honor leadership in agribusiness and academia by providing education, information, experience and recognition.
We are celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2021 - “Honoring Farmer-Veterans: Those Who Feed and Defend Our Nation,” paying homage to President Eisenhower for establishing the Agricultural Hall of Fame. Military veteran protein producers from around the nation will show off their barbecuing skills. A traveling exhibit from the Eisenhower Museum and Library will be on display in our museum. New members will be inducted into the National Agricultural Hall of Fame, including U.S. Senator Pat Roberts and Fabian Garcia, known as the father of the New Mexican food industry.
