The Mill Spring Agricultural Development Center serves as a resource center for agricultural development, farmland preservation, education, community service and business development. The center is housed in a large, beautifully restored brick building which is located at an important cross roads in the middle of the County. The building was built in the 1920’s and is dear to many local residents who began their childhood education there.
The Center’s Vision is to enhance community spirit and quality of life by working with farmers, local businesses, and individual citizens to promote the sustainable economic growth and rural character of Polk County. Take a tour of this wonderful piece of history for a chance to experience rural living at its best! Inside you will find a variety of artists’ studios, a 500-seat amphitheatre, a business incubator, and best of all, the PolkFresh Farm Store for locally grown produce, farm products and hand-crafts.
