Prairie Winds Nature Farm
Welcome to Prairie Winds Nature Farm! We are a working educational farm using permaculture methods to produce food for humans as well as wildlife. We offer visitor experiences and farm education in a relaxed, family-friendly environment. 85 acres of restored wetland, prairie, woods, and fenced pastures, combined with farm animals and garden spaces, offer a chance for visitors to learn where food comes from and connect with nature.
We provide fun and educational field trips and curriculum development for kids of all ages. Activities depend on the weather/season, your group’s size & ages, and your interests.
We subscribe to the tenets of No Child Left Inside as inspired by the book “Last Child in the Woods” by Richard Louvre. REAL = Respect the Earth and Life. Let’s start a movement!
Prairie Winds Nature Farm is partnering with Earth Charter Indiana to organize and hold a professional development opportunity for youth aged 18-30 regarding sustainable agriculture, permaculture, activism and climate change. We hope to empower young leaders to educate individuals in their community, seek out opportunities for partnership, and provide knowledge. As a result of completing this program, the young leaders will receive a certificate of completion and have a program or project lined up for them to work on in their hometown.
