We farm the family farm and I am semi retired now. I also drive my semi in the 5 state area. We live in southern Minnesota on what was once was prairie. We now live among corn and soybean fields.
We love camping and meeting new people. We have also done some traveling over seas.
We like riding bike and kayaking in the summer and down hill skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
My wife is a retired florist and bookkeeper. She loves working in her flower gardens, scrapbooking and making cards.
We have the tools to repair many things
We have not been Boondocking, yet. We like to camp at State Park Campgrounds and near a lake or bike trails. We like to get to know other campers and share a camp fire.
our home town does not have many amenities, but it does have a dump station. We live close to a town about 20 Minutes away with grocery stores, a small mall, lakes for boating, bike and walking trails, & swimming pool. In August they host the County Fair. 45 minutes from us the town has a larger shopping area, a state park with water falls and a herd of buffalo that you can view.

Wonderful country farm with beautiful views of forever and and beautiful garden. Delightful folks to visit with.
If you like people who enjoy chatting but respect privacy, share garden delights & home baked goods then you will love 💗 meeting this lovely couple. Granted, I was there for a couple of nights so we had more time to socialize. As with all the Boondockers Welcome sites I’ve stayed at, I felt perfectly safe.
Nearby Fairmont has a very nice laundromat also.
The hosts here were both just the sweetest people. The spot is large and they have gorgeous gardens/patio area. Sadly, we got in late and didn't get to visit very long, but we would gladly stay here again! Nice and serene farmlands.
Very gracious and kind! We left with tomato samples and fresh sweet corn. We met a cute little furry friend,(puppy), as well. If your traveling through this part of Minnesota this is a wonderful place to boondock and meet some friends!
What an enjoyable stay with the host. We had a great spot under the shade trees and the host provided an extension cord so we could plug in.
What made it especially nice they gave us an information sheet which is so appreciated. It told where and what to do and they even provided a bicycle trail map knowing that we were bikers!
We enjoyed visiting with them on their back patio and talk about rv’ing. They even invited us to go out to eat with them. What a great host!
We would love to come back again and visit.
Just yesterday when I was looking at Boondockers I saw there are 3 places I didn't leave a review for - although I thought I did. Reading all the great reviews you have gotten reminded me of what a beautiful place you have and how sweet you were to me. Thanks again for the hospitality and good conversation.
I've decided that I must have said some things that were considered personal.
Please excuse how long it took me to rewrite. Hope all is well for you both!
What a lovely, gracious couple! They were so sweet and accomodating, and we really enjoyed spending our evenings with them in their fabulous garden. Even got to watch a good, old fashioned tractor parade the morning before we left.
My father and I are headed east and were welcomed with open arms. They offered electricity for the night along with a little history of their farm along with a map of things to do in the area. They put on a campfire later that evening as we all sat around joking and telling stories. The firefly's around topped off the night. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Wow! What a wonderful couple who have the most gracious hearts! We were enthralled by the gardens that they designed and built with blooming flowers of different kinds. The beautiful stained glass made by our hostess filters the sunlight perfectly.
They shared so much with us about the area, and we took our youngster to the nearby lake for a great day of swimming, awesome playground time, and the Dairy Freeze for awesome soft serve ice cream. Fireflies abound and make the nights magical near the wonderfully built fire pit and patio.
They offered a helpful information sheet that also told us about the rich family farm history. We loved this and the stories they shared. We already knew how essential farming is to our country and our health, and the stories of different times in farming history helped us understand the depth of sacrifice and commitment that farming families have made and strength and resilience they have.
They also helped us with an important and simple solution that made the rest of our trip possible, and we can’t thank them enough for that. We also left with a bundle of beautiful, culinary herbs! What a joy!
This couple and this place are inspiring. It was such a heartwarming stay, and we hope to see them again!
A familiar feeling of family with them felt like home the land is just beautiful. I wish we could have spent more time with them and just chat about travels and adventures. Truly amazing people gave us a tour of the near by town and a map of the area on arrival very informative couldn't ask for anything more very welcoming and a wholesome beautiful farm will miss them. Will definitely be back!
Our hosts could not have been nicer! Their farm is beautiful and peaceful and having access to water and electric was a huge bonus. They took to our son immediately and he had a ball "helping" them around the yard! Will definitely look to stay again!
Had a great stay and visit at Prairie Farm. Very hospitable hosts, enjoyed our evening visiting while the kids caught lightning bugs and ran through the corn field. Thank you!
Great host! Beautiful property to walk after traveling. Host was very welcoming. Gorgeous gardens. Very quiet, peaceful setting. Would love to come back!Thank you!
We enjoyed our stay at Prairie farm. It was peaceful and quiet. They had hookups for water to fill and electric which was awesome! The farm was gorgeous. Our kids played a bit outside, but we also were able to relax after a few days of traveling. The quiet birds fresh air and sunset was relaxing. Thank you for the hospitality and a wonderful spot!
Fantastic hosts! We had a rough day of travel and didn’t arrive till after 10pm. Both of them waited up for us and made us feel so welcomed!
We really wish we could have stayed and enjoyed their beautiful garden and get to know them more!
We had a lovely time at Prairie Farm! This property is down a quiet country road and it is beautiful and peaceful. Their site has a very easy pull-through and the 50 amp hook-up was much appreciated. Everything on the property is so well cared for and nice, especially the gardens, and it was pleasant to stroll around the property and down the road and look at the fields with their corn and soybeans growing. The owners are wonderful people who make you feel right at home. They kindly shared some freshly picked asparagus which was delicious! We loved visiting with them and enjoyed an evening at the fire pit in their back yard learning about their travels and sharing ours as well. We found that we had a lot in common with them and we would return here anytime and sincerely hope we meet this wonderful couple again.
We had such a wonderful stay! We booked same day and arrived a tiny bit after sunset and our hosts were so gracious and kind. Slept well and enjoyed coffee and conversation with them in the morning, and quite enjoyed hearing about the history of the farm. We left with an armload of garden-picked butternut squash and bell peppers - what a treat!
The hosts were absolutely delightful! They greeted us in the driveway and helped show us to a spot. We had access to electrical which was awesome! They put on a fire pit for us and let us pick some fresh raspberries which were amazing. The space was beautiful with flowers and gardens and their farm in the background. Perfect spot for an overnight stay. Highly recommend!
We pulled in at evening time and left in the morning but they were so friendly and helpful and kind and we really wish we could’ve stayed longer to chat more and enjoy their beautiful yard.
We really enjoyed our visit and the warm conversation. We look forward to meeting up with you and your family in Bemidji, or in Texas. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful farm life.
Our overnight stay at prairie farm was perfect. The hosts we very accommodating & hooked us up with every need!!
We enjoyed our conservation in their beautiful back yard & had a lot of laughs. Though our time was short we felt a very good connection & really enjoyed our stay... We will definitely visit again when we are in the area!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!
Prairie Farm is such an apt name for this wonderful boondockerswelcome host located near Truman, MN. We were met on arrival and provided with an information sheet that provided some background about the farm, emergency and contact information, local attractions, stores, etc; a thoughtful and appreciated touch as well as a memento of our stay here. They really have a beautiful farm and were so gracious and hospitable. It was so quiet and peaceful. Beautiful trees all around the yard, a stately cottonwood in the large back yard. Everything is so beautifully maintained. We got to eat some corn from their garden, which was really quite good. They have rock stacking creations around the property that we found interesting. We used their 30 amp hookup, though they also had 50 amp available. They offered water but we were pretty full so didn’t need to take advantage of that. The weather was beautiful so we didn’t use the 30 amp hookup much for A/C but we did use it a bit for TV. Their wifi wasn’t necessary as we already knew our follow on destination for tomorrow. T-Mobile signal varied from one to two bars but we didn’t put up the cell booster as we didn’t need internet access this time around. These are wonderful down to earth people that reminded us of family roots in neighboring South Dakota. This is a great experience and we would love to stay again if we find ourselves in the area.
Our host were wonderful and gracious, very nice quiet country place. They had a plug in, if you wanted. A place for your trash, also said if we needed water we could fill up. We just plugged in. I would definitely like to stay again.
We enjoyed the quiet night's sleep, and exploring the gardens! We will definitely stop here again if we are in the area.
Thank you to Prairie Farm for the warm welcome, the peach dessert, and the wonderful visit! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back!
There are several places for 50amp service and the hosts were more than happy to fill our fresh tank. The property itself is well worth the tiny trip off the beaten path. It is a gorgeous home preserved from the early 1900s. The yard is beautifully landscaped, and we loved sharing a campfire and stories in their awesome fire pit.
I was able to stay on their farm for 4 days. I am very appreciative of their hospitality. Doc and I had a great time and they were very sweet
It was a wonderful experience staying on the farm. The couple was very nice and accommodating. It was relaxing and quiet on the farm.
These super sweet hosts have an amazing country farm that is so quiet and peaceful. It was certainly a lovely place to rest after a long day of traveling. The scenery was spectacular with green grass, beautiful trees, and lovely flower gardens. Especially loved watching and listening to the birds chirping. We highly recommend these awesome hosts and hope to meet up with them again in future travels.
Prairie Farm is easy to find just a little ways down a very well maintained county road. The site was level, easy to pull thru, and offered 50 Amp electric and water.
We spent a very restful night after being welcomed and made to feel at home.
We will request again when in the area and recommend to others.
This was a really quiet and rural location, easy to get to down a short gravel road. Hosts were so very nice to accommodate me on short notice. They provided me with much needed electricity so I could stay warm with my 2 cats! I would have enjoyed hanging out with them a bit more but it didn't work out with our schedules. They seem really knowledgeable about all things RV.
We quite enjoyed our stay here! Our hosts were very friendly and inviting. Thier place is quiet and peaceful. We were greatful for a place to stop and get some work done, and still have a big area for our dog to play ball. And the long country road made for nice evening stroll.
We had a great time here on our second visit. It was so nice to spend a few extra days for more conversation, card games and pizza al fresco. We returned favor by hosting a taco night followed by dessert. There was a strong storm that knocked down some trees the day after we arrived, but we enjoyed helping clean up the debris on the farm the following day complete with tractor ride! There is plenty of room for our big rig here. It's ez to get to and roads are nice and open. Hosts are so friendly, they are like family to us now... in a good way!
This was a perfect quiet spot for our family of four after a longer travel day. It was lovely eating in the screened gazebo overlooking their gorgeously maintained gardens. We woke to birds singing and were able to peacefully drink our coffee and look over our next plans while the kids slept in. The physical location is very easy for a big rig and tow vehicle to pull in, around and out and they even offered 50 amp electric. The hosts had helpful maps prepared of the area as well as a little history of the farm and how to use things while there. They are obviously caring and thoughtful people, and that is exactly what I want my kids to learn from our year on the road-- all the ways people are kind and caring in our country and how families have settled and taken care of the land. I loved learning the history of the home and meeting a sibling who was visiting as well.
Very nice people who provided us with a beautiful view of their garden. We had everything we needed, and they gave us information about the surrounding area. Easy drive off the interstate; we felt very welcome and would definitely stay here again.
What a beatiful place, with super hosts! So grateful to have a super spot to stay!
Our stay there was wonderful. 50 amp electric was wonderful. This is a really quiet and peaceful place. Super sweet people, she had a map of the nearest town with lakes we could take our boards to play! The afternoon storm was bringing hail and they even offered for us to ride out the storm in the basement if we needed. Would definitely recommend this stop!
They are wonderful hosts and invited us into their garden oasis for lovely conversation. This Boondockers parking space is everything a big rig needs. Thank you so much.
The prairie farm hosts were SO WONDERFUL!! We were incredibly (and embarassingly) late, and they didn't even blink twice... we were welcomed with kindness and grace. Spent a little time talking in the morning learning a bit about the property and this lovely couple. Such a pleasant experience! Would (and hope/plan to) glam-dock here again. Thanks very much!
These "friends" are almost our neighbors...We thought it would be fun to check out a boondocker nearby so stayed one night at their farm. Their flower garden in the back of the house is something to behold...beautiful. Lots of flowers, a pond with a trickle of water running, beautiful rocks etc. etc. We sat in their screened-in-porch on the patio and had a nice visit. Wish we could have visited longer, but we were anxious to get on the road the next am...so missed saying goodbye. We would suggest that you book a night with them.
Very nice land, not far off highway 90, well worth the mile of gravel road! Very friendly couple, warm welcome. Would recommend to anyone passing by!
We are so thankful that we got to meet such a wonderful couple. Truly gracious, informative and friendly. What a pleasure to learn about them, their life and their journeys.
