Milk the Cows & Churn the Butter!

You don't need a time machine to reverse the course of time in order to enjoy antiquated farm activities.

Salt Lake City County offers many fun and educational farming programs for youth and adults at Wheeler's farm.

Pose & Party!

This expansive and gorgeous farm was restored by Salt Lake City County in 1974 as an Agricultural Museum and outdoor recreational site. More than 75 acres of a serene landscape filled with historic buildings make this farm a very popular location for capturing life through photography.
