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.

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. Admission is free with state park entry. We hope you can join us for this fun, family friendly event! If you plan to come, reach out and let us know and we will be sure you can get through the park gatehouse stop point at no charge.
