Fire Tears Through Historic Grantsburg Farm


Fire at 100+ Year Old Farm in Grantsburg

A beloved 100 year old dairy farm saw its original barn and parlor burn down yesterday in Grantsburg.

The damage didn’t stop there either, at Four Cubs Farm.

Owned by the Petersons, the farm also had to relocate its 800 cows to other farms.

The farm had been milking cows at that location since 1877 and it's currently unknown when they’ll be able to return.

The local community rallied around the farmers in need, and numerous trucks and trailers showed up to help ferry the cows to other welcoming temporary farms.

There has not been official word on what started the fire
