Heartland Farm is an 80-acre ecological farm that was established back in 1987 by the the Dominican Sisters of Peace. Located 14 miles west of Great Bend, the Farm offers an experience of peace and serenity.
A herd of beautiful, inquisitive Huacaya alpacas live at Heartland Farm and a visit to their barn is a must. You might find these lovely animals in the pens near the barn, loafing in the barn itself or grazing in one of the pastures.
We raise alpacas for their fleece and for their organic compost as well as for breeding. We spin the fleece, sell yarn and roving as well as knitted and crocheted articles made from alpaca yarn.
The Farm contains two straw bale buildings, one of which is a hermitage and the other, a large meeting space with surrounding spaces containing an art studio, pottery and spinning room. There is also an outdoor garden pavilion to host large events with seating and tables for at least 50 people.
Guests are welcome to roam the open pastures and walking trails around the 80-acre farmstead, ensuring a pleasant retreat for all visitors. Come walk the labyrinth, a meditative path that relates to wholeness, a journey to our own center and back. Guests can visit for the day or reserve overnight accommodations in the Farm's guest house or strawbale hermitage. Harvest Hosts are also welcome.
When you visit Heartland Farm you will be able to expand your knowledge and skills through hands-on experience. You will be introduced to the idea of eco-justice or deepen what you already know through opportunities for learning, holistic healing, retreat work, volunteering, and more.
The Farm has a gift shop on site that includes its alpaca’s luxury fleece spun into yarn and other fashion items, farm gifts, and domestic goods for sale. Throughout the year, the Farm offers hands-on learning workshops that cover a wide variety of sustainable topics as well as custom experiences that can be selected on the Farm's website.
Stay in the know with the Farm by visiting its website. Please contact the Farm ahead of time if you would like to come by for a tour and visitation of the alpacas.
