Norman Borlaug Boyhood Farm

The Norman Borlaug Heritage Foundation is in the process of acquiring the boyhood farm of our favorite native son from the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. The Foundation's plans are to maintain the farm as it was in the late 1920s and to add displays and information about the man and his research that led to his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970, Medal of Freedom Award and over 35 honorary doctorate degrees. The farm is located about 12 miles south and west of Cresco. The farm will serve as both a tourist stop and learning center.
