1930's Farmstead

1930s farmThe 1930's farmstead includes a house, dairy, windmill, barns and other out-buildings. During our summer tour season, we even have live farm animals, so you can see what a real farm was like in the 1930s.

By this time in Minnesota's history, about 40% of Minnesotans lived on family farms.

The Rural Electric Coop brought electricity to Minnesota farms in the late 1930s making farm life much easier. Electric lights, milking machines, running water and NO MORE OUTHOUSES! Imagine the excitement.
