Barnacopia Agricultural Museum

Created by farmer Gary Bocker, a three-story barn displays more than a dozen refurbished tractors, plus one revolving in the third floor cupola. There are also restored autos and hundreds of other artifacts and exhibits that give visitors an agricultural history lesson. At the end of the tour visitors are treated to free ice cream in the 1950s-style diner and ice cream parlor.

An adjacent silo houses a two-bedroom Bed and Breakfast with a John Deere pool table lit overhead by a John Deere tractor engine hood.
