The mural was painted by Mindy Allen of Mindy’s Murals, Scott City.
Kansas Farm Food Connection (KFFC) sponsored the creation of a mural that is on display at Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead in Overland Park. The mural, The Agricultural Wonders of Kansas, was completed in time for the Farmstead’s 2019 opening day.
“We’re proud of how agriculture is represented in the original art mural and our hope is that it brings awareness of how engrained agriculture is in our lives and economy,” said Sami Carter of Midwest Dairy who helped coordinate the project. “We also hope that it fulfills a curiosity to learn more. The efforts of farmers and ranchers to produce the food we eat is something visitors can appreciate every day.”
Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead is a family attraction depicting a Kansas family farm in the early 1900s. It has over 200 animals, stores, a country schoolhouse and more.
KFFC is a joint effort of eight Kansas ag organizations, including the Kansas Pork Association, whose mission is to share the story of Kansas agriculture. Click here to learn more about KFFC.
