We went during their Harvest Festival and really enjoyed it. There were a lot of activities for my two boys (ages 3 and 5) in the historic home and on the grounds. The barn and surrounding area was fun to walk around and look at the animals. There was also a water pump to check out and woods to play... More

A nice gem in the suburbs were you can learn some very interesting history. Lots of hands one activities for kids and adults. I made ketchup when I was there. And they have all these cute farm animals running around.

We live in the Twin Cities and have driven by the farm many times. My husband and I took our 3yr old and 12yr old and they both loved it! The kids got to try chores they would have had to do in the 1860's. Washing laundry, kneading dough, pitch forking hay (not sure what that's called), play Town Ball,... More

We visited the Oliver Kelley Farm twice last summer- Father's Day and 4th of July. We spent hours with each visit. We planned on staying just a couple hours, but our children (ages 4 & 6) couldn't get enough! We found if you ask the staff to help with chores, you get much more out of the experience. The kids...

Have gone here for many field trips with elementary school. The Kelley Farm staff do a great job every time. Fun place to go as a family too!

This is a wonderful place to take the family/friends for the day to learn about what farm life was like prior to modern technology. Plan to spend at least 3 hours here. Enjoy the animals- petting or bringing well water to the animals, help with gardening, in the kitchen, or on the farm. Walk the trails along the Mississippi River... More

The Kelley Farm is a great place to get outside, see and touch farm animals, help to cook in the kitchen, and do farm chores (if you wish). They also have a picnic area off of the parking lot if you wish to have a picnic (there are also small picnic tables for kids). They always have some kind of... More

I remember being here on numerous class trips. It is an old farm, and the workers teach you about what farming was like in the old days. They provide hands on experiences (or at least they did for our class trips) and they have a gift shop. It is a wonderful place to go to learn about farming!

I took my son here for the day. It was a lot of fun for him to see how life was in the 1800's in America. I enjoyed walking through the house since I grew up in one very similar. The smell of the root caller reminded me of home. This is a good place to go when you are... More
