Heifer Village is a $7.5 million educational facility built on the site of the world headquarters for Heifer International, a global nonprofit organization whose goal is to relieve world hunger and poverty. The environmental footprint for the ecologically friendly headquarters building comprises a former industrial wasteland that has been converted to thriving wetlands. Throughout the Village, you'll learn about world hunger and other global issues through hands-on exhibits,
videos, and activities in either self-guided or structured visits, ranging from one to three hours. A light lunch is available on-site at the Heifer Cafe. Overnight and multiday activity options are available at Heifer Ranch, about an hour west in Perryville.
