The Purple Tractor

The Purple Tractor is a merchandising teaching laboratory at Tarleton State University offering farm to table products locally. It was created for students within the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences to learn how to make and market agricultural products including fresh and frozen meats, vegetables, and nursery plants. All products are produced by Tarleton students in Tarleton classrooms, barns, and fields. Proceeds from sales at The Purple Tractor help recoup the teaching expenses at our Agricultural Center so that it all goes back to enhance the student experience.
