With the holiday season quickly approaching you may be searching for that perfect gift. The Farmer's Walk of Fame at The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame is the solution. What better gift for the hard to buy for loved one in your life than recognition at a National Museum?

The Farmer's Walk of Fame is a place to honor your loved one and show your appreciation for agriculture at the same time. Brick by brick The National Agricultural Hall of Fame is building a pathway of knowledge and appreciation for the American Farmer through the Farmer's Walk of Fame.

For a donation of $125 each donor will receive an engraved 4 x 8 brick (or $225 for an 8 x 8 brick) placed at the Ag Hall of Fame; a frame-suitable certificate; a one-year membership to the Ag Hall of Fame; and the knowledge that you are supporting the National Agricultural Hall of Fame and our ability to honor the American Farmer and help educate all who visit about the past, present, and future of farming.

Special recognition for farmers: Let us know if your contribution is in honor/memory of a farmer and we will be sure to place your brick in our walkway specifically designated for farmers.
