projects & Programs

The NBHF is actively involved in sharing the legacy of Dr. Borlaug through a variety of programs. We are also involved in the preservation and care of the Birthplace and Boyhood Farms and the one room school he attended as a boy. The farm properties are actively employed in informing and educating visitors about the life and work of Dr. Borlaug.

Help the NBHF continue its Educational Outreach Programs, the Restoration of Buildings and our Long Term Goal of Establishing an Endowment to fund these programs and build a Visitors Center.
