On Saturday, September 15th from 9 am to 1 pm (breakfast served until noon) this modern beef research center will be hopping with activity. After arriving at the farm, located at 5307 Bennett Road in Lansing, visitors will first enjoy a hot breakfast before starting out on a self-guided walking tour of the farm.
