It was a nice family day. A place to bring the kids. A place that on the ride home was a common topic discussed during the ride. Had communication going on with the kids and that a plus anytime.

Gibbs Farm shows the life many of our ancestors went through when they first arrived in Minnesota. The farm is right in town and is very geared to children. A great place to bring the kids.
