I went with a group of about 25 middle school students. We had a lot of fun learning about the history and animals. The kids had fun participating in some of the chores! Bring water with you!

It's like stepping into the past. The location is beautiful and the self guided tour at your own pace is really a draw for us. It's like stations: go see the hair art in the old house, visit the sheep barn, then see the new...More
