Holz Farm

Have you ever wondered how a farm is run? Find out for yourself! The Holz Farm in Eagan is doing just that! Holz Farm is located at 4665 Manor Drive. It is an 80 acre parcel from the 1870’s. The property remained in the family until 1993 with the passing of Otto and Ella Holz. In 1995 Eagan City Council Members purchased the land for residential developments in Eagan. The farm bridges Eagan’s past and present, old and young and rural and urban communities. The farm shows family life from the Great Depression through World War II. This farm provides educational, cultural and historic resources. This is a beautiful picturesque farm which offers a unique opportunity to experience rural life as it once existed in Eagan! For people who want to learn more about the Holz Farm there has been a booklet created called “A Walking Tour of Holz Farm” to read.
