Reviewed July 13, 2012

This was something interesting to see.

This is a working depression era farm. The grounds are beautiful and you can take a walking tour or ride in a little trolley pulled behind a tractor and the farm owners will give you the history of the farm.

There are many buildings to see including a basket shop, a summer kitchen, a church, a grist mill, and a barn with some HUGE steam tractors.

There is also a barn with animals that you can feed - pigs, llamas, sheep, chickens, etc. Bring your quarters to buy feed out of the little machine.

There were also two ponies out in the field that seemed friendly.

The day that we were there, they were doing a garden tractor pull, so we watched that for a while.

The only thing we would have changed was that there were not any attendants working in the shops. The farmer / tour guide said that there would be demonstrations going on in some of the buildings, be we didn't see anyone. He said they were having a tough time getting people to volunteer at the farm.

My two year old loved the place and we are glad we went.
