OK~ I recently had the delight of visiting Tyden Farm No. 6 in Floyd County in North Iowa. There are many interesting barns all across the country and I think it's fair to say that North Iowa is home to several AMAZING barns. The hospitality that the owners of Tyden Farm No. 6 offered the North Iowa Bloggers and myself was greatly appreciated. Have you visited Tyden Farm No. 6? If not, I'd say that you should plan to visit soon.
Ted and Judy Pitzenberger are the current owners of Tyden Farm No. 6. Emil Tyden was a man with many great accomplishments. He purchased land in North Central Iowa and built up to eight different farms. Another accomplishment is the fact that he is the founder of 200 patents. How cool is that?
Farm tours are available Mid July-September. Reservations can be made by calling 641-426-5277 or e-mailing the Pitzenbergers here.

The tour itself is very personalized. Ted and Judy are engaging and will answer all of your questions. Their tours are family friendly. On the particular tour I was on, there were several children who had a lot of fun. Kids activities were planned for the tour, which made for a fun experience for everyone.
If you are a Iowa history buff, Tyden Farm No. 6 is a MUST! If you love barns and maybe follow the #barnsofinstagram, this is your place.
The museum was informative and very interesting! The gardens were fabulous and each garden area had its own theme. From Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz to the Deer in the Garden, Tyden Farm No. 6 has you covered.
