About

The Farm

We are rescheduling our events and staying positive during our period of social isolation. If you have questions, or are concerned about an upcoming event, we are always available by phone, or email, or why not try a video chat?

Stay safe!

Crooked Lane Farm has been a working farm in Brent’s family for over 100 years. It is recognized by the North Dakota Fort Mandan Foundation as a Century, or Centennial Farm. The new farmhouse constructed on the site of the original family home, now serves as classroom and gathering space, and the historic Schneider Barn, moved here in 2014 hosts weddings, reunions and a variety of community events. We are proud of our role in preserving the history of not only our farm, but of all North Dakota rural farm families.
