I just got back from a 36 hour overnight as one of the adult chaperones in my daughters third grade class. The children absolutely loved their experience of cooking over an open fire and spending the night in a real log cabin...all 28 of us : ) We were told stories, learned about the pioneers way of life and those same children were up and out at 6:00 am to eat breakfast and do their farm chores!

A few of the folks who work there might be a little gruff but honestly, we were their to learn about pioneers not to be coddled, Valerie and Dan both really stood out as taking time and care to help the children have a special experience. Valerie is the matriarch who's grandparents were pioneers and she brings an authenticity that makes it really special. Especially as she tells real pioneer stories to the kids by the fireplace before they all snuggle into their bags to go to sleep!

We all had a great time! Highly recommend for a class overnight!

This farm is way over priced, they need to update there pricing on line. The employees were more interested in all their rules than making the tour fun for the kids. The little black pig need to be put in a retirement home, his was aggressive and biting the kids. Not a happy fun place!

We were on a road trip to have some fun and see some sight. We are a quiet 62 year old couple with white hair and a small SUV. We saw the signs on the main road advertising this little history farm and thought it would be a fun and interesting side trip. We arrived to find several cars in the parking lot, and could see a group of children being led about. There was a woman grooming a huge horse and a couple of other people standing about the old farm buildings. We got out of the car, leaving our dog inside, and started walking among the buildings. A young man, obviously a guide/farm hand, approached us and ask us to leave, as they were only giving tours to booked school kids. We just wanted to look around, but he said no. We were very polite, tough disappointed. We headed for the parking lot and got our dog out and took him to the far edge of the parking lot to let him relieve himself before we drove on down the road. The woman with the horse was leading the horse across the parking lot into a field. she yelled that we couldn't water our dog on their property, and that we should take it out onto the road. By this time the whole thing was so ridiculous they we were actually laughing about it! We laughed all the way down the road in our car and wished we could do something about the welcoming signs that they posted on the main highway! (I wonder if she knew that her horse was Relieving himself in the while she yelled at us.
This is not a friendly place to go. This people are not nice and I would hesitate to subject my children or grandchildren to any of them.

This is a great place for kids who really want to get a hands-on experience at pioneer life. Two sections divide the experience. The first is the log homes where kids will grind corn or wheat into flour, washboard/wring/hang to dry, laundry, blend butter, explore shaving tools or their hair curled the old fashioned way, dress up, knead dough, etc.

The second part is the barnyard, carpentry, and blacksmith shop. Kids will really use the black smith tools which means heating the horseshoes in a real fire and banging them into shape then drop them into a bucket of water.

IN the barn, the kids can milk a dairy cow, pet the goats, sheep, and pigs as well as crawl into the chicken coop and hold the rooster. To top it off, there is a short horseback ride as well.

This experience is best for kids 6-16. Toddlers and older teens might enjoy the NW Trek wildlife Park better if you had to choose.
