Our Friends of the Farm
From the hogs to the chickens, our friends of the farm are an important part of what makes our farm so diverse. Both the hogs and the chickens live exclusively on the Red Farm. All the animals enjoy the outdoor air and plenty of room to roam.
The type of hog we currently raise is the Large Black Hog. These animals are big and hearty. Most of all, they love rolling in the mud at the Red Farm. Other animals of the farm include our chickens. The ladies of Heritage Prairie Farm come in quite a large variety! From Brown Ameracuna Chickens to the Rhode Island Red Chickens, Heritage Prairie Farm makes sure that the ladies of the farm have plenty of outdoor space to enjoy.
On the White Farm, there are no better friends of the farm than our two baby goats, Betty and Martha, and donkey, Chirstaphine. At Pizza Nights and Farm Dinners, everyone enjoys walking up to their pen, meeting them, and, of course, snapping a few photos of the animals. You too are welcome to visit with the adorable animals on the farm.

Large Black Hogs
Our hogs can grow quite large, between 700 – 800 pounds for the males. The Large Black Hog is known primarily for its hardiness and extensive farming history. With their growing popularity, the breed is also known for meat production, especially bacon!
Goats & Donkey
Betty and Martha are sisters and everyone’s favorite animals on the farm. They are four years old and you can often spot them doing what they do best. . . climbing!
Our old gal, Christaphine, is the sweetest donkey you will probably ever meet. She loves to eat! If she’s not in her barn, you can most certainly find her snacking away.
