Essential Information

15788 Kelly Farm Rd. N.W.
Elk River, MN 55330

763-441-6896

Step onto a working 1860s farm. Pick heirloom vegetables from the garden, visit the farmhands and animals at the barn, or churn butter and see what's cooking in the farmhouse. Costumed guides work the fields with oxen and horses. You'll see plowing with oxen, horse-powered threshing, haymaking, and other harvest activities. The gardens and fields are filled with many of the same plants the Kelley farm grew over 130 years ago. In the house, try your hand at domestic crafts like making straw hats and soap.
