Little Hands for Ag

Hands-On Experience

Little tykes get a hands-on experience at life on the farm at the Little Hands interactive exhibit especially for kids.

Founded by the Indiana State Fair, the Little Hands exhibit made its California debut at the 2004 Merced County Spring Fair. The Little Hands exhibit is an interactive, fun-filled family adventure.


The exhibit features mini barns, an almond orchard, row crops, a poultry barn, and even sheep sheering. Children must be accompanied by an adult assistant as they complete farm chores, plant seeds, harvest their crop (topped off with a tractor assignment), and sell their harvest. The final stop is at the Little Hands on-site store where the little farmers buy some of the commodities harvested along their journey.
