Home on the range has a different meaning to agriculture students than it does to other ACC pupils. The board of trustees of Allen Community College extended a listening ear Tuesday night to a variety of patrons about the possibility of selling the Allen Farm.

The college farm’s purpose is to serve as a laboratory for the agriculture program courses. It also functions as a residence experience for eight students, as one of several practice areas for Livestock Judging. 

The farm is five miles north of Iola and has 240 acres, a farm manager’s house, the Zahn house, which hosts eight scholarship students, a south barn and a north barn.
