It's a wonderful experience to go for a walk in the woods with your loved ones and cut your own tree. But, it can be a bit brisk! Please come in and take the chill off in our pole barn. Yes, this is where most of the year the tractor, tree shakers, balers, and just about any other tool in existence that the Hansen men can use ends up in and all around the barn.

 

 

 

 


 



During the Holiday season we try to transform the barn into a warm, festive environment. We hope you enjoy the aroma of Mark Hansen's greenery, the festively decorated trees and free hot cocoa and cider. Plus, mid-day on weekends we're happy to share our Grandfather's sausage.

While you warm up, please browse our Artisan Gallery and Gift Shop. We try to stay true to nature by offering gifts made of wood, bark, stone, metals, glass, and fiber. There are also delicious locally grown and produced food items. And, we're very pleased to provide exposure and support to a number of Minnesotans who create unique handmade ornaments and gift items.

We're delighted to have the work of so many artists and their creations to share with you.

Watch wood carving demonstrations.  Check Our Calendar for times.

Linda Mix Yates
Mosaic Art Plaques, Frames, Mirrors, Ornaments

Technically, the type of mosaic Linda creates is "picasiette", a folk art tradition, that loosely translates to "crazy plate stealer". But, in modern context speaks more of the use of broken pottery. Linda embraces the challenge of creating new, spectacular and meaningful works of art out of the obsolete and mundane.

Scott Carvings
Wood Carvings, Ornaments

Russ Scott and Lynne Medgaarden carve, and carve, and carve. The result is wonderful traditional, and sometimes not so traditional, but very fun, wood carvings that they then paint, and paint, and paint. This year Russ has designed new Santa's based on antique post cards from the late 1800's and early 1900's. His new motto is: "We create family heirlooms that descendants will fight over for generations."

Glass Ornaments, Necklaces, Earrings, Hair Clips, Garden Markets



A Southern California transplant, Vicki Olson stays warm in her Minneapolis kiln-formed glass garage studio. Drawn to the spontaneous and volatile nature of glass and the accompanying challenge that, with one unplanned move, the artist could be forced in a different direction, Vicki creates unique, funky and functional glass art.
