Animal Sponsorship Opportunities

If you love them like we do, consider a sponsorship in 2021!

At The Farm at Prophetstown, we are dedicated to our animals’ care and welfare. They are our partners in historic interpretation and helping families make memories!

Costs for animal upkeep are one of the major expenses at The Farm, and we would appreciate your helping support their care so that we can continue to have a large variety of animals for visitors.  Please consider a sponsorship! We welcome individual and business sponsors!  If we receive more than one sponsorship per animal we will use the extra funds for animal care year round.  All sponsors will be acknowledged on a sign in the barn. THANK YOU for your support!

We have seven handsome roosters, all friendly and tame, who play an integral role at The Farm.  They keep an eye out on their “girls” and make sure they find food and are safe from predators.  These handsome fellows love to strut their stuff, and if they are feeling really good, they just might crow for you!  The roosters’ needs for the year are scratch grains and poultry feed.

 

ANNUAL SPONSORSHIP PER ROOSTER- $40.00

Sponsor a hen!

The chickens are always popular children, because of their bright and fancy colors and their antics chasing bugs and playing in the sunshine.  They are so much fun to watch!  We have over 60 hens, and they lay healthy, nutritious eggs that we sell.  They’re hard working girls who love the fact that they can freely range anywhere they want to go on the Farmstead.  The hens’ needs for the year are scratch grains and poultry feed.

 

ANNUAL SPONSORSHIP PER HEN- $40.00 

Sponsor a duck!

We have three breeds of ducks at The Farm – Buff ducks, Call ducks, and Pekin ducks.  The white Pekin ducks are quite elderly, but still love to jaunt around The Farm and splash in their duck ponds.  The Buff ducks and Call ducks spend their days playing in the water, sleeping in the sun, or laying their beautiful opal-colored eggs.  The ducks’ needs for the year are scratch grains and poultry feed.
