Heritage Farm is a working alpaca farm with over 50 alpacas you can watch and interact with. Make friends with our black Labrador, Juno. Also residing on the farm are a flock of chickens, 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. Then, as the day winds down, enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see!
Activities for kids include helping with farm chores, wading in the creek, and swinging on the large platform swing.
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. You can even buy a s'mores kit to make 6 mouth-watering s'mores.
If you are more adventurous, you can fire-up the brick pizza oven and enjoy pizzas and other roasted delights! We have a pizza kit available for purchase. The kit includes a dough ball for making a 10" pizza, sauce, cheese, sausage, pepperoni and instructions for making great wood-fired pizzas.
If you plan to cook on the grill or burner, you have provided a few basic cooking supplies such as a skillet, a pot, a griddle, various cooking utensils and table settings. The cabin also has a coffee maker and microwave.
Be sure to visit our farm store 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!

Enjoyed the great outdoors!
Our stay at Heritage Farm was simply amazing. The cabin was rustic and comfortable. It was like living in a modern day "Little House on the Prairie". The hosts were gracious and accommodating and welcomed us to help feed the alpacas, collect the chicken eggs, and play with their resident barn cats. It was a nice weekend getaway just roaming the farm and enjoying the great outdoors.
We had such a wonderful experience here! Our hosts were friendly & helpful, and the cabin was beautiful. Our preschoolers were kept busy and happy with all the activities, like walking through the woods and playing in the creek, making campfire s'mores, and of course visiting the alpacas! We had such a relaxing weekend; we can't wait to come back again!
Warm, welcoming, wonderful
This place is magical, and Tim and Becky are so kind to share their little piece of heaven with others. This secluded cabin had it all, including a welcome wagon of barn kittens to melt my daughter’s heart; my son actually gave up a D & D date in favor of playing with the new feline friends! The beds were comfy, the lighting atmospheric and the spaces both large and cozy. I imagine everyone who visits will want to come back, as we do. Thank you, Tim & Becky, for saving this little piece of history and buffing it to such a shine.
An amazing getaway…
There’s a reason this destination keeps winning “Best of” awards. We stayed here for three nights over the 4th of July and had such a relaxing trip. The cabin itself is like “stepping back in time” as everyone says (although the AC on the second floor is appreciated!). It’s very comfy and cozy and we enjoyed reading around the old fireplace at night. The beds are also very comfortable (they are old wooden beds, so a tiny bit short for us tall folks, but I just slept diagonally). The outdoor space is where this cabin shines, however. We made full use of the outdoor fridge, huge grill, outdoor sink, and the wood-fired pizza oven. We cooked so many great meals over the weekend (we lucked out that Tim was already making pizzas on Saturday so we could throw our own in the oven after). If you can, I suggest bringing a large griddle so you can make pancakes, eggs (farm fresh!), etc. (Pro tip: if you put the garbage can in the attached bathroom at night the raccoons won’t get to it). During the day we read in the hammock, wandered around the farm (it’s nice that they let you experience the farm on your own and give you a lot of safety guidance to do so), met the alpacas, hung out with the kittens, walked the path through the forest and creek, and took a day trip to France Park and Monticello. There’s also a really great Kroger in Kokomo that has everything you need. At night we hung out around the fire pit with a bourbon and watched the shooting stars. On the third of July we could see the fireworks all around the farm, particularly from the second floor balcony. There’s also an alpaca feeding experience that was my brother-in-law’s favorite part of the trip. All in all this is a truly amazing getaway only a short drive from Chicago. It really felt like we were on vacation, even if only for a short time.
Great log cabin; excellent hosts!
This was a fantastic stay in an authentic log cabin - the second floor is all one bedroom and the first floor includes memorabilia and a gas stove and wood fireplace. Hosts were friendly and helpful and made the stay a lot of fun. And great fun to meet the alpacas and learn about their care!
Absolutely amazing experience!
This place is absolutely amazing! Great decorations, attention to details create an incredibly charming atmosphere. Depending on your needs/wants you can either go "all the way Frontier" or take advantage of modern amenities such as full bathrooms, gas fireplace, comfortable beds, etc. There's fireplace inside, a fire pit and pizza oven outside and a gas grill, all available, all ready to go, clean and fully functional. The surrounding farm is lovely and the hosts are extremely pleasant and accomodating. We'll definitely come back... if we're able to book, that place is extremely busy and rightfully so!
My husband and I and our two kids stayed in April and we had so much fun! The kids were never bored as there was plenty to do and see. The kids loved the creek and despite the chilly water they got in and splashed around. We also got to see brand new kittens that were born during our stay. We had a bonfire one night, used the tree swing and of course saw and fed the alpacas. We enjoyed it so much we’ve already booked another stay in the summer!
