There is great food, just good food, food you have to eat because your parents liked it. New food, old favorites, food that you wouldnt buy but it is in the blue ribbon book. Food that catches your eye or otherwise intrigues you. Food you buy just to share. There are patriotic standards like the Dairy Building malts or all the milk you can drink. There is ethnic food of every description.
The Ag Hort building has displays that change every three days or so. If you dont like the African Violets then come back in a few days and the Gladiolas will be there. There is the perennial family joke of you can lead a whore-to-culture but you cant make her a lady when we first pass the Ag-Hort building.
The 4H building is like a Norman Rockwell painting.
The animals; who knew there were so many kinds of chickens? The Miracle of Birth Center is a bit messy but fascinating.
