Travel back in time and experience the fascinating world of Norse culture by taking a trip to our Viking Village for some genuine family fun! Come cheer on epic displays of live-action battle reenactments (kids get to do mock battles too), throughout the weekend.
In the Viking Village revel in tales from Storyteller Calum Lykan and watch smithing demonstrations by Nick Goetz. Then take a stroll through the crafters market and enjoy such vendors as MasterArk.com, Teresa Wyss Pottery, Rocky Mountain Maille and Porter Custom Leather and Woodworking.

If you need fortification there will be a food truck with a healthy variety of victuals and tastings of award-winning mead – a sweet fermented beverage made here at the farm with honey that Norsemen termed the “Nectar of the Gods”.

Combine your experience with an Apiary or Meadery tour to learn the secrets of honey and mead production. Afterwards visit our Country Store for more unique, local products – and mead of course!
