About the Farm

Located on a 42-acre piece of heaven, Back Forty Farms is home to a lot of history.

The property used to be a 100-acre dairy farm in the early 1900's.  Our trademark red barn is 106 years old and our farmhouse was built in 1915.  You will enjoy Indian Creek during your visit as it flows through our property.

There are plenty of animals to see during your visit such as chickens, sheep, goats, bunnies, Highland Cattle, ducks, turkeys, horses, a llama, and even kangaroos! Also keep your eye out for a variety of wildlife such as fox, eagle, hawk, blue heron, beaver, and more.
