The Klinefelter Farm located just two miles east of Hiawatha, KS, is owned and operated by Highland Community College and the HCC Foundation. This beautiful 480-acre farm was a gift to the college from the John M. Klinefelter family. The farm had been in his family for nearly 130 years. The Farm is home to the Klinefelter Barn which is home to the Arts at the Barn series, a self-supporting and non-profit cultural event series held annually.
All events are open to the public with limited space available. Tickets are available by phone at (785) 442-6009 or in person at the Highland Campus, 606 W. Main, Highland, KS. For more information visit highlandcc.edu/pages/arts-at-the-barn.
