Directions to SHF

Near Windom, Minnesota

Emphatic Note:
It is essential that you have a good Minnesota map in the car!
USE THESE DIRECTIONS WITH A GOOD MINNESOTA ROAD MAP in your hands. Before you leave the cities, walk through the directions and trace your path while looking at the map.

Shalom Hill Farm is located northwest of Windom about 11 miles. I am going to give you two routes from the Twin Cities.

Route1: Here is the somewhat shorter, but more difficult route, through Jeffers.

  1. Take Highway 169 southwest from the Twin Cities to Mankato. Then take Highway 60 west almost to Madelia. (Hwy 60 runs in common with Hwy 169 for a while, then separates from 169 just beyond Mankato).
  2. Exit onto Highway 15 north just before coming to Madelia; jog north (less than a mile) on Highway 15; turn left onto Highway 3 going west to La Salle.
  3. Highway 3 begins to curve south just past La Salle; after about 1 mile turn right onto Highway 30 going west to Darfur and Jeffers. (Caution–the intersection with Highway 30 is not well marked),
  4. From Jeffers take Cottonwood County Road 52 south (left) for 4 miles. The last mile is gravel.
  5. Turn right (west) on to County Road 3. Drive 2 miles.
  6. The Farm is on your right at the top of the hill.

Route 2: Here is the second route, a little longer and a little simpler, which goes through Windom.

  1. Take Highway 169 southwest from the Twin Cities to Mankato. Then take Highway 60 west to Windom. (Hwy 60 runs in common with Hwy 169 for a while, then separates from 169 just beyond Mankato.)
  2. As you are entering Windom on Highway 60, at the first stop light turn right.
  3. The road you are now on goes past the town square, winds around a bit, and quickly heads north west along the river, turning into Cottonwood County Road 13, also known as the River Road. Stay on this road (approximately 7 miles) past the Sun Valley Gun Club on your right.
  4. Turn right on County Road 21 (a gravel road). County Road 21 is marked on the right with a Shalom Hill Farm blue and white directional sign. Drive 3 miles to the stop sign at the "T."
  5. Turn right at the "T." Shalom Hill Farm is the driveway on your left.

Here is the address and phone and web site for Shalom Hill Farm. Their web site also has directions.
