This report presents findings from the financial analysis of a heritage farm proposed to be set up in Pine River, Minnesota. Heritage Group North, Inc. is spearheading the idea of setting up the proposed heritage farm with an aim to promote the knowledge and appreciation of the region’s
history and continue to do so while being able to be operationally sustainable. The farm would have three major components – (1) Heritage Tourism, (2) On-Site Lodging and (3) Event Center with a Commercial Kitchen and a Deli style restaurant. The farm would also add to the economic
and educational activities in the region by promoting heritage tourism, designing programs for school children, development of a robust summer camp program and grow as a prominent event center for both private and business events.
Heritage Group North, Inc (HGN) has been looking to pursue a signature project in Pine River that promotes the knowledge and appreciation of the region’s history while contributing to economic development of the region. The plan is to create a destination center that would bring
people to the area on a seasonal or year-round basis. The project shall document and interpret history, but not in the form of a museum full of dusty artifacts. The plan is to have an interactive approach featuring live demonstrations and participant involvement which makes history come alive.
