From humble beginnings and big dreams, our story started in the soil we go back to every day. Although our farm story continues to flourish, we are proud of our many accomplishments. In just a few years Heritage Prairie Farm went from Certified Naturally Grown to USDA Certified Organic. We are proud to grow our produce in a sustainable and efficient way — always giving back to Mother Nature for giving so much to us.
As we continue our story, it is our hope to continually give back to our community. Whether it’s a wedding or a farm dinner, farm-to-table event or class at the farm, we truly love to share our USDA Certified Organic produce with those around us. Our outdoor wedding venue holds wide acclaim throughout the entire Chicagoland area. The Knot, Wedding Wire, and The Venue Report have all featured the many farm weddings at Heritage Prairie Farm. Our desire to innovate our monthly Farm Dinners leads to many partnerships with local breweries, distilleries, and unique vendors. But, no matter what, the root of every event at Heritage Prairie Farm is our locally grown produce. As the seasons change, so do our customized events according to what is growing on the farm.

Unlike most conventionally grown microgreens, ours are grown in organic soil in our greenhouses with plenty of sun. New in 2021, we are offering a Microgreens Subscription Box that ensures a weekly box of microgreens. Available for Farm Store pickup or delivery to select cities, this is the best way to ensure you get a weekly supply of delicious, locally-grown microgreens!

The farm itself is a beautiful special place that provides an almost magical connection to nature and the world around us. After spending time on the farm for a special event, farm dinner, or trip to the farm store, people leave feeling happier and more fulfilled than when they arrived. As you can see, to complement our farm’s atmosphere we are committed to growing and creating food in our fields and kitchens that is healthy and uplifting to the body.

By working alongside Mother Nature we can ensure that we produce the best possible products and experiences. Organic farming is at the core of our company.

Truly, as our story reflects, we are inspired because we believe in what we are doing and where we are going.
