Experience the farm in its Christmas best! See the farm house, school house and rural church dressed up in vintage charm. With activities, refreshments and gift shop in the church, there is something for everyone! In the house, you'll see gifts under the tree that you may have seen in the 1920s, the smells of holiday treats from the working wood stove, and more. Stop in to see the antique tractors. They have their own holiday cheer this year!

Every Saturday and Sunday this holiday season, we're filling our church with Christmas services, music and more. With local pastors leading services, organists providing music on our 1914 tracker organ, accordion players, piano players and more, the sanctuary will come alive this season! Give us a call (402-710-0682) or find us on Facebook for details.
