Coker Experimental Farms and its parent company, Coker's Pedigreed Seed Company, founded in the early 1900s by David R. Coker, developed new, improved varieties of crop seeds. They also developed the first cotton breeding program in the US. Exhibits depicting the company's impact on Southern agriculture are housed in a replica of the site's original dairy barn. Self-guided interpretive exhibits are open from 9am - 6pm daily. Annual Fall Festival features a corn maze, antique tractor show, hay rides and hot dogs and ice cream!
