Visit an agrarian farm in central Minnesota. Stay in a re-purposed postal truck complete with outdoor shower, located in the old orchard (see map). Feed the cows some apples, cuddle up with a chicken and get some laughs watching the shenanigans of a one-eyed blue jay and one full-of-character ex-street dog named Burdock. Take a hike through 40 acres of native prairie and hickory/oak forest.
LOTS of wildlife all around, at all times of the. You will probably hear geese, pheasants, song birds, coyote and see deer, trumpeter swans, mallard and wood ducks, sandhill cranes, leopard frogs, painted turtles, coyotes and maybe even a cougar! Cool off in the creek or visit Piepenburg Park or Belle Lake which are right around the corner. If you want to learn about wild foraging, medicinal herbs or anything farm-related we can arrange that.
There is also a meditation silo for those looking for a more inward experience.
Private outdoor shower and a composting toilet are available for your use. Bedding and mosquito net and towels also included.

Lovely, Independent Organic Farm!
Stephanie and Daniel surpassed anything we imagined from hosts. While Daniel was busy reimagining an old chicken coop for new projects; Stephanie was generous in sharing her expertise of foraging and natural medicine, suggesting on-site and nearby activities, and delicious organic produce (her tomatoes are out of this world!).
While it is an active organic farm, it's surprisingly quiet (only the 2 hosts were working alongside a collection of remarkably chill and content livestock). The one-eyed bluejay provided amusement and funny pictures but might startle those who are skittish around birds.
The truck was a sweet, cozy hideaway that kept us dry after rain and morning dew. An evening campfire (fire-ring & wood provided) was the perfect conclusion to a country weekend. We look forward to returning as we still have more woods, trails, and garden rows to explore. Highly recommended!
