In continuation of our Harvesting Hope Series, we are excited to spotlight an organization that highlights the fundamental beliefs of Hurst Farm Supply. Agriculture and our community’s pioneers are a vital part of the South Plains culture. This week we are featuring an organization that keeps the heritage of our community’s agricultural pioneers and their equipment alive -- the Bayer Museum of Agriculture.


Originally the American Museum of Agriculture, the Bayer Museum was incepted over forty years ago by Lubbock civic leaders who believed that the South Plains agricultural heritage and culture was disappearing. It became reality in 1969 as the Lubbock County Commissioners Court gave Alton Brazell authority to collect machinery vital to the transformation of agriculture in the West Texas area. The Bayer Museum of Agriculture now brings new life to the machinery in an outstanding setting, built to educate and recall the revolution of agriculture on the South Plains.


Just as is the case in the industry, the Bayer museum continues to expand and develop to create an environment true to our local agriculture. The museum includes a growing number of interactive exhibits for visitors to thoroughly experience life as a farmer on the South Plains. Learn more about the museum’s exhibits and events on their website.


We are proud to have such a tremendous facility right here in Lubbock County and understand that it takes more than words to support this monumental organization. To help the Bayer Museum of Agriculture serve the South Plains, you can donate here.
