About the Facility

Buildings & Exhibits: Our exhibits are housed in four buildings, totaling 20,640 square feet. Volunteers constructed almost all of the exhibit buildings as well as the ongoing equipment renovation which you may see in progress when you visit.

At our facility, you will discover the rich agricultural history of the Central Coast. (Six counties make up the Central Coast: from south-to north, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz) We primarily focus on the northern most counties of Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz.


When you visit our facility, you will learn about the crops, people, and farming practices that have made the Central Coast of California what it is today. We have artifacts and exhibits to reflect the following industries: beef and dairy cattle, chickens, goats and other farm animals; fruits, vegetables, flowers, mushrooms and other unique crops. From potatoes and wheat to lettuce and strawberries, the Central Coast has supplied the world’s tables for over 150 years!
