Moorhead, MN To Foxhome, MN To Madison, MN

Madison, Minnesota

August 13, 2021

Back to a more leisurely pace today. Left my hotel at 9 am and rolled into my campground at 3 pm. Almost the entire drive was through corn and soybean fields. Flat topography. Saw a couple of lakes so those 10,000 are not near the Dakotas’ border.

Foxhome is an agricultural community located just over an hour south of Moorhead.

Foxhome is a city in Wilkin County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 116 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Wahpeton, ND–MN Micropolitan Statistical Area.


A post office called Foxhome has been in operation since 1896. The city was named for Robert A. Fox, a local real estate agent.

Note: The postmistress was kind enough to postmark several cards and envelopes for me. 😁🤙


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.37 square miles (0.96 km2), all land.

After leaving Foxhome, I stopped by a cornfield. Buddy has heard me thinking about how high fructose corn syrup is made from corn and ran into the field to find some syrup. As you can see, his clothes are perfect camouflage in a cornfield.
