On Discovery Days children and adults take an unguided tour of Centennial Farm. During their visit can see a milking demonstration (9:30 a.m. only), pet a chick and learn about plants and animals from any of our many docents stationed around Centennial Farm.
Centennial Farm is a three-acre working farm at the OC Fair & Event Center created to educate youth about agriculture and its importance to daily life. The Farm is home to fruit and vegetable gardens, livestock, and the Millennium Barn.
