The Mill Spring Agricultural Center was born out of the abandoned Mill Spring School, a 40,000 square foot building abandoned in 1998. Through over 1,000 volunteers and counting, the building is slowly being restored into a beacon for its community. It features a local food farm store, agricultural distribution center, small business incubator program, auditorium for technical and cultural events, meeting space, art studios, and demonstration and exhibition gardens, greenhouse, and orchard. The Mill Spring Ag Center is owned and operated by the Polk County Soil and Water Conservation District and is not tax funded. Funding for operation is solely derived by refurbishing and then renting out old classrooms as offices and through fundraisers and donations.
