Enjoy the simplicity of country living along with small town atmosphere. Built in 1904 by Scandinavian immigrants, THE FARM continued as the family's dairy operation until 1993. Presently, the land is being utilized for growing crops and grazing livestock.

Stroll through the stable, hike the 200 acres of fields and woodlands, or walk/bike the four blocks to browse through downtown Birchwood featuring unique gift shops, a variety of stores, restaurants, and an ice cream parlor. The tiny town of Birchwood (pop. 400) has its own high school, public boat landing, park, and Bluegill festival. Numerous lakes attract many visitors to the area.

This is in response to frequently asked questions by horse people . . .

*Horses must have a current negative Coggins test.

*My horses are not available to guests.

*There is no charge for pasturing your horse. If they require indoor stabling, daily rates are $5.00 for tie stalls, or $10.00 for box stalls.

*The 75-mile Tuscobia Trail is accessible from THE FARM. It is an old railroad bed that is now a state owned trail groomed for snowmobiles. During the summer, it is closed to motorized vehicles the 15 miles to the west. The near-by Ice Age Trail is much more challenging.
