Located outside of West Lafayette near Battle Ground, Indiana inside the beautiful Prophetstown State Park, The Farm at Prophetstown offers a unique experience to visitors on all aspects of farm life in the 1920s. Programs, events and classes revolve around topics like baking, blacksmithing, gardening, canning, animal care, and era-specific family entertainment and crafts. Farm-to-table cooking is highlighted with The Farm’s popular multi-course dinners served on beautiful china from the early 1900s. The Farm practices aspects of sustainable agriculture and offers a variety of heritage breed animals that would have been found on farms during this time period. Two farmhouses on the property serve as museums and offer a glimpse into how families lived in the 1920s, with additional buildings that include a magnificent barn, a blacksmith shop, a corn crib, chicken coops and other facilities for visitors to explore and enjoy. The Farm draws on a wide range of resources such as beekeepers, master gardeners, farm professionals, and home economics experts. Animals guests can visit on The Farm include; horses, cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys, chickens, ducks and turkeys.
The staff is dedicated to showing, sharing, and teaching about historic agriculture and the homesteading arts, as well as outstanding animal care and excellent customer service.
