Big Stone Mini Golf
Location: 110 County Rd 110 W, Minnetrista, MN 55364
I’m not sure which came first, the mini golf or the farm. This is a nontraditional goat adventure but it’s an amazing experience. At Big Stone Mini Golf start off with a round of golf through the artist-inspired mini golf course. Then warp it up by wandering around on the property. First up are the goats. In the springtime look for the newest additions to the herd. The goats are really friendly. Around the corner, you’ll see ducks wandering around by the pond. A little further back is another goat area. Throughout the entire property, you’ll find some amazing sculptures too!
