Farm Stay

Heritage Farm is a working alpaca farm with over 70 alpacas you can watch and interact with. Make friends with our black Labrador, Juno and our two Great Pyrenees, Jack and Frost. Also residing on the farm are a flock of chickens, 4 goats, several barn cats and our horse, Stormy. If you want to, you can help with the daily chores of feeding the animals and collecting eggs. After that, you can explore the big red barn that was selected as one of the top-ten Bicentennial barns in the state. Recently, our farm was the recipient of a rural preservation award from the Indiana Landmarks Foundation. Roam around the 120 acre homestead, woods and creek and soak in the sights, sounds and smells of the farm.

Activities for kids include helping with farm chores, wading in the creek, swinging on the large platform swing and soaring down the 400 foot-long zipline (extra fee $50 for an hour).

Before you leave where you can shop for alpaca products such as sweaters, hats, mittens, scarves, teddy bears and toys. Pick up some delicious honey collected from our hives or some farm fresh eggs from our flock of pastured chickens! Located 3 hours from Chicago, 1 hour from Indianapolis.

Accommodations include a modern guest house that sleeps up to 9 and a 160-year-old log cabin that sleeps 5. You can also pitch a tent or park an RV if you choose.

The most popular rental is our beautiful 1850 log cabin. This authentic 1850's log cabin provides a comfortable retreat from your busy lifestyle and allows you access to a beautiful Midwest alpaca farm. The cabin has a large sleeping room upstairs with 2 double beds and 2 twin beds.

A stay at the cabin includes the use of a gas grill with side burner and a small under-counter refrigerator. There is also a rock-lined fire pit for cozying up to or making s'mores. The cabin has a coffee maker but cooking utensils and tableware are not provided.
