Nebraska Farmer travels. That’s part of the job — traveling to farms and ranches, rural villages, and ranch towns across the state. Over the course of time, editors and writers have traversed nearly every corner of Nebraska, not only uncovering stories about production agriculture, but also ag sites and farm heritage displays, parks and museums.
Just like Nebraska Farmer, these sites often tell the history of the state from the viewpoint of agriculture. During COVID-19 lockdowns in spring 2020, editors compiled several virtual tours of a few great ag-related sites and developed slideshows from those spots to allow readers and Nebraska youth a myriad of compelling and educational in-depth armchair tours.
In this article, we are recounting those virtual tours into a one-stop shop for our readers. Click through our slides and find the ag sites you would like to visit. Then click through our link to that virtual tour.
As one of the top agriculture states in the country, Nebraska’s farm history is rich, complex and quite interesting. We don’t pretend to have uncovered every interesting ag site in the state, so our search and adventures continue. But we hope you enjoy these tours that we’ve compiled so far.
