South Dakota is one of the most agricultural states in America. Tour opportunities include farms/ranches with thousands of acres of range and farmland; the Sioux Falls Stockyards, one of the busiest in the country; a potato chip processing plant; an ethanol plant; large and small packing plants; and South Dakota State University, highly regarded for its agricultural research. In the northeast part of South Dakota, farm stays for group tours are an option.
