About Us


We conduct tours of Dr. Borlaug's home, the farm buildings and the New Oregon School #8.  Tours can be arranged by emailing us or by contacting the Cresco Chamber of Commerce. The farm is open to visitors at any time.  While the buildings are locked, there are informational signs throughout the property.  There is also a walking trail with signage that connects the Birthplace and Boyhood properties.
