2nd Generation Family Farm
Heritage Farm holds a legacy that dates back to 1956 when Beth's parents, Bob and Nelda Lovelace, acquired the land. Bob's passion for Herford Cattle shaped the landscape, and the very pastures that now host alpacas were once graced by his beloved cattle. The Federal style brick farmhouse, a testament to the farm's rich history, was constructed in the late 1800s and has stood witness to the passage of time.
Over the years, the farmhouse has undergone renovations, yet the solid walnut woodwork has been preserved, maintaining the timeless character of the old house. Each corner echoes with the stories of the past, a living testament to the Lovelace family's connection to the land.
A glimpse into the farm's history is captured in a poignant photograph from 1910 when the Rodkey family owned the land. This evocative image serves as a window to the bygone era, showcasing the enduring spirit and heritage woven into the fabric of Heritage Farm.
As stewards of this historic land, Tim & Beth honor the legacy established by Bob and Nelda Lovelace. Heritage Farm is not just a place; it's a living tapestry of memories, passion, and the enduring beauty of a family's commitment to the land they call home.
ABOUT HERITAGE FARM
In 1998, Tim & Beth embarked on a journey of stewardship, taking over the farm and christening it Heritage Farm as a tribute to their deep agricultural roots. With a vision to maintain the property as a working farm, they sought out non-traditional livestock, leading them to the enchanting world of alpacas. Since acquiring their first small herd in 2003, Tim & Beth have dedicated themselves to the care and raising of these remarkable creatures.
Beyond establishing a successful livestock business, their focus over the years has extended to preserving the farm's historic charm. Heritage Farm is a testament to their commitment to maintaining the authenticity of the land, offering guests an immersive experience amidst the picturesque rural Indiana landscape. From cornfields and meadows to forests and wetlands, the farm invites visitors to explore and appreciate the beauty of the surroundings.
As stewards of Heritage Farm, Tim & Beth extend a warm invitation for you to be a part of this legacy. Whether you choose a 90-minute tour, an overnight stay, booking an event, or participating in one of the regularly scheduled events, your visit is destined to be memorable. Embrace the tranquility, history, and charm that define Heritage Farm, and let Tim & Beth ensure that your experience is nothing short of exceptional.
