Describe yourself, your family, background, farming experience, philosophy, goals and interestsOur farm seeks to honor the heritage of the native prairie and Montana's agriculture. When settlers came to the prairies, they started small-scale diversified family farms. At Prairie Heritage Farm, we are doing the same in the 21st century (with modern twists). Both Courtney and Jacob were born and raised in Central Montana and are proud to call it home.
Describe the physical setting of your farm and the nature of the community in which you liveWe're located in central Montana, near the small town of Power, with a population of a couple hundred. Our farm sits on the short grass prairie, where the Rocky Mountains meet the plains. The sky is big, the wind blows, and we're in the flyway to a large bird migration every spring and fall. Great Falls, a city of over 50,000, is only 30 miles to the south.
Describe your farm operation
Prairie Heritage Farm grows certified organic vegetables, garlic seed, and variety of ancient and heritage grains on 30 acres. We also have an on-farm sourdough bakery and will host a pizza night in the summer of 2019.
