Welcome to Heritage Acres …

an agricultural interpretive center designed to tell the ongoing story of farming. We became a vision in 1976 when we realized how quickly an historic way of life was disappearing from the landscape. Now we are a rapidly growing reality as we create a living rural experience for people of all ages to see, touch and explore. Located on forty acres of rich Martin County prairie overlooking Fairmont’s beautiful Lake Sisseton. We invite you to discover the many reasons the upper Midwest is called America’s Breadbasket. Providing food and fiber for the world family is an essential and vital industry deserving of recognition and preservation.
