Experience the life of a farmer at this working farm in the breadbasket of America.

David Wessels set aside a plot of land and some money to keep a legacy of farming alive. Located off of Exit 353 on Interstate 80, this living history farm has over 140-acres of land and gives you a chance to see what it's like to be a farmer. This incredible farm is still in operation today and has an old schoolhouse, farming equipment, gardens, and a barn to help visitors get a feel for the farm life. In the summer, they host an annual tractor and automobile show at the farm. 

David and his brother lived at the home that is found on the property; however, it is not currently occupied. It was moved to the farm in 2002. Other buildings such as the barn and granary were donated by Nebraska residents to portray the history of this farming community. Modern restrooms are available for guests and you can see tractors and other machinery at the 4,000 square foot steel building. The farm is open from May 1 through September 30. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm.
