The Snoop House
This century-old mining location house was moved to the farm many years ago. It served as the main farmhouse until a few years ago when it was again moved, this time to the field behind the barn. Filled with vintage furniture and an abundance of toys, children are welcome to explore this life-size playhouse.
Moving the old house left behind a cement block basement. Instead of filling it in with dirt, it is covered with a green house. During the warmer months this sun-filled subterranean space is lush with vegetables and flowers.

Enjoy a bit of lakeside living on the deck of Matt’s log cabin. During the spring of the year the chorus of frogs is phenomenal.
Real Horse Power
Huge Percheron draft horses provide the power for the farm. They plow the fields, plant and harvest the crops, cut the hay and spread the manure. They also pull the wagons and sleighs used to give rides around the farmstead. The trails wind through the woods and around the fields. Learn about the role horses played in our history and what they are used for today.
