Agricultural Learning Center

The Agricultural Learning Center at the Fairgrounds was established in 2010 to provide students and educators with entertaining and informative experiences relating to agriculture. A committee of individuals with backgrounds in education and experience working with The New Jersey State Fair®/Sussex County Farm & Horse Show, the largest agricultural fair in the state, develops and implements the programs of the Center. These programs have reached over 4000 children, plus teachers and parents in Sussex County as of June, 2016.

The Learning Center supports the Sussex County Farm & Horse Show Association mission statement: “to showcase New Jersey’s agriculture; provide safe, family friendly entertainment and engaging educational activities; and promote youth development.” The county’s agricultural community has been very supportive. Individuals have assisted at class trip visits and donated pumpkins, corn, hay, straw and sunflowers for the students to use.
