Heritage Prairie Farm
FOUR SEASONS ORGANIC GROWING METHODS
Our farm story only began back in 2006 — just a few short years ago to establish a strong reputation for providing very high quality produce. We first started growing our vegetables in a sustainable, Certified Naturally Grown way and then became USDA Certified Organic in 2014.
We employ a combination of high production, low acreage, four-season growing methods based on techniques developed by Eliot Coleman. Through a system of movable greenhouses, succession plantings, and crop rotation, we extend the growing season to maximize the land’s efficiency. Our efforts to maximize the land’s efficiency means more sustainable local food for our CSA members and Farm Store.
The natural beauty of Heritage Prairie Farm is something to see and experience. Our Certified Organic Farm stands out as each season passes.
Without a doubt, our vegetables are at the center of our USDA Certified Organic Farm.
Throughout the year we produce the following vegetables including but not limited to: arugula, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, chard, eggplant, fennel, garlic, cilantro, dill, basil, kale, leek, lettuce, melon, onion, pepper, tomatoes, radish, spinach, turnips, and much much more.
In addition to seasonal vegetables, we grow specialty produce year-round in heated greenhouses.

As Heritage Prairie Farm continues to grow, so does our animal production.
Next door, the red farm raises both hogs and chickens sustainably for our local community. Our pork products and chicken’s eggs can be found in our Farm Store and at the Wheaton Farmer’s Market.
Seen by many farm visitors, everyone’s favorite farm animals are our two goats, Martha and Betty, and our donkey, Christaphine. We welcome you to visit with these adorable animals on the white farm! Just look behind the Farm Store the next time you are picking up your Certified Organic Vegetables!
The farm’s roots began with honey. It’s a beautiful part of our heritage that we continue to honor.
From harvesting throughout the seasons to sharing our honey in the farm store, we have committed to beekeeping practices that sustain and protect our pollinators. We know that our friendly bee-keeping methods are very important to our local supporters and we have committed ourselves to those practices for many more years to come.
All our raw and infused honey can be found online or in our farm store.
These tiny, nutrient dense veggies are the most recent addition to our Certified Organic Farm. Although they may be new, our microgreens are certainly making big headlines.
Unlike many conventional MicroGreens methods, ours are grown in rich, organic soil in our greenhouse. Always harvested by hand, our MicroGreens are then triple washed and Hydro-Cooled to ensure maximum shelf-life and food safety.

Everything was spot on!
We wanted to send our gratitude for all that the HPF team did to make our wedding day so incredibly amazing. Everything was spot on from the food and drink to setup and details. All our family and friends keep talking about what a great place. Also, thank you for the personalized cutting board. So unexpected but looks great in our kitchen.
