Historic Bagg Bonanza Farm

Historic Bagg Bonanza Farm The Frederick A. and Sophia Bagg Bonanza Farm is a preserved example of a bonanza farm, located in southeastern corner of North Dakota.
(16)

The Bagg Farm opens for the season on Memorial Day and is open through Labor Day, Friday - Sunday and summer holidays. The hours are 12:00pm - 5:00pm. Please contact us for information on hosting your own events - weddings, reunions, business meetings, and more. The Bagg Bonanza Farm, North Dakota's only restored bonanza farm. The Bagg Farm is located in Richland County, North Dakota. We invite guests to come visit and take a tour, learning about bonanza farm life and the past generations that changed the Red River Valley from the country's furthest outpost to a settled, prosperous farming community. The Bagg Farm was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. In 1986 the farm was added to the State Historic Sites Registry. In the same year the Bagg Bonanza Farm Historic Preservation Society, a non-profit organization, was officially founded. In 2005, the farm was designated as a National Historic Landmark. Today, the Society has over 400 members and derives its funding through the generosity of individuals, businesses, and corporations. The ultimate goal of the Society is to restore all buildings on the site as well as begin agricultural production plots adjacent to the farm site.

Sharing the history of the Bagg Farm mule barn and a dedication from Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

Love the message Senator Heitkamp shared about people coming together to create something really special for our county, for the state and for our country. A message about the people of ND coming together, volunteering, to create an amazing opportunity to keep rich history and culture alive. "The history of agriculture is in this project. 90% of the land in ND is in production agriculture. That's who we are."

It's built on volunteer hours and a dream.

Getting ready for the dedication of the mule barn.
