Prairie Birthday Farm was established in 1993 as a biodiverse, sustainable land stewardship effort. Its 15 acres include heritage fruit trees and the following gardens: heirloom vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, small (berry, bramble, and vine) fruits, and wild edible fruits. Pastured heritage chickens & ducks, honey bees, tall grass prairie, and rotation paddock pastures for 2 horses complete the landscape. Native plant and edible landscaping surrounds the residence. Bounty from the farm is sold to local chefs and area residents. “Tell me of what plant birthday a man takes notice, and I shall tell you a good deal about his vocation, his hobbies, his hay fever, and the general level of his ecological education” (A. Leopold, A Sand County Almanac, Prairie Birthday Essay, 1949).

Across the growing season the following are available in limited quantities:

  • heritage and wild tree fruits (apple, pears, persimmon, plum, etc.)
