It was cold but fun to walk around and take pictures. Not a huge place but beautiful location and fun place for kids. Worth the stop if you are in the area and the visitor next door is nice too.

Went during the winter and even though it was cold the farm exhibits were still nice to walk through and visit. Will recommend visiting no matter the time of year. Will try to go back and visit during the summer time.

Stopped here with my family and shared to my kids how time use to be like. It' a old farm from the 1800's. They have all the buildings needed for that time period and its all original....stuff like that intrigues me.

The various farmhouses were moved here from other locations, but still a neat place to stop. The chickens and pigs were a bonus.

We went to see the Elk but enjoyed the farm. Interesting especially considering it is free. Fun to see the chickens and pigs.

This is a great step back in time to the pioneer days. They have done a great job maintaining the structures and providing information to understand the pioneer ways. Definitely worth the 15-20 minutes to walk through.

i would leave a pet in the car if possible or on a leash in the parking area only. elk and wild turkeys are out and about in these areas and not advisable for dogs as they may scare off this attraction
