"Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation. The hiking was beautiful, the food delicious, and the accommodations delightful!" -Anna & Shawn, Madison, WI

It’d be a real pleasure to have you come out and enjoy a stay at Palmquist Farm this Summer or Fall!

My name is Jim Palmquist, and my 800-acre farm is located in North Central Wisconsin. My wife Helen and I do raise beef cattle and timber on our farm, but our real passion is great Finnish hospitality that goes back nearly 110 years.



Our farm has been in my family since 1902. Back then, it was just a 40 acre subsistence farm that my great grandfather started. Since then, many generations of my family have lived and worked this farm and made it what it is today. We are proud to be a family business that has been taking in guests since 1949.

A Country Getaway: Vacation on a Wisconsin Farm

Summer on The Farm means deep green forests and wildflowers. When September and October roll around, the trees transform into vibrant colors. The Farm is a one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive resort, providing lodging, home-cooked meals, and a variety of activities.


Summer and Fall are the perfect time of year for hiking and biking, wagon rides, cookouts, local Wisconsin attractions, exploring The Farm with your horse, or just relaxing on the porch or taking a Finnish Sauna.

Try fishing in the Somo River which runs right through The Farm. See deer, beef cattle, and horses grazing in our fields. Watch wood ducks, mallards, and geese swimming and nesting on our ponds. If you enjoy a good puzzle, try out our Scavenger Hunt.

We’d also be happy to host your event, family reunion, or wedding.



After a day of farm activities, enjoy a relaxing evening in our cozy cottages. We have smaller cabins for 2 to 6 people. Our large, handcrafted log cabin (called "The White Pine Inn") is perfect for big groups. We have a total of 5 cabins and a few rooms in the Farm House that can fit about 40 to 50 people.

As I like to say, there are no strangers at The Farm. Only friends you haven't met yet.
