Farm Family Photos Needed

One of the most popular parts of the Glass Barn is the photo display of Hoosier Farm Families. Be one of our featured families by sending your family photo(on the farm if possible) along with your name and hometown name to glassbarn@indianasoybean.com. 


Virtual Reality Experience in the Glass Barn 

This year, we will again be featuring “Smart Farm” technology to give fair-goers a glimpse of a farm in Virtual Reality. Experience 360-degree videos using our Virtual Reality Glasses, which gives you a one-of-a kind experience inside a modern pig farm. 

Farmer Chats

Farmer chats will take place each day during the State Fair at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Come talk with real farmers, ask them questions and win! A $25 grocery gift card and Dairy Bar milkshake coupons will be awarded at each chat!
