The American Royal has secured the 115 acres in Kansas City, Kan., where it plans to build its new $250 million home, the nonprofit announced Tuesday.  

The news comes more than three years after the agriculture education and competition organization announced that it planned to relocate from its longtime home in the West Bottoms to the area northwest of Kansas Speedway near Legends Outlets Kansas City.  

The facility aims to be “the national destination for the food and agriculture industry, the Epicenter of Agriculture — a vision that will elevate the presence of the longstanding Kansas City tradition,” the American Royal said in a release.

"Agriculture was always here, but it just needed a front door," Lindsey Patterson Smith, a member of the American Royal board and director of the Neal Patterson Family Foundation, said Tuesday during an event on the ground where it will be built.
