One of our favorite field trips is to Oliver Kelley Farm in Elk River. Good news – it’s opening to limited visitors for five Saturdays only this August – October! Walk the nature trails, discover what’s growing in the victory garden, see the farm animals, and learn fun farm history tailored for kids.
Tickets are on sale now for the following dates:
- August 22
- September 5
- September 19
- October 10
- October 24
Admission is $8/person, or free for children 4 and under or for MNHS members. There’s also a limited-income discount of $4/adult and free for children 17 and under, if you qualify.
If you’ve visited Kelley Farm before, you’ll notice some changes this season due to COVID-19. You can read all about them here, but know that the only building that will be open is the upper level of the barn. All other buildings are temporarily closed. Tickets are timed-entry and tours are self-guided. The visitor center is only open for restroom use and onsite ticket purchases.
Oliver Kelley Farm is located at 15788 Kelley Farm Rd in Elk River.
