See first-hand how Minnesota farmers survived in the 1800s, thrived in the 1900s, and developed the modern farming techniques of today. A lot has changed over 160 years!

If you have a group of 10 or more, call 507-835-2052. We’ll arrange for an interpreter to accompany your group. It is a fun, outdoor experience for family reunions, groups of scouts, students, friends, and professionals. Tram transportation from each farm site is available if needed.
