2nd Generation Family Farm
Beth's parents, Bob and Nelda Lovelace bought what is now Heritage Farm in 1956. Bob's passion was Herford Cattle and what are now alpaca pastures are where his beloved cattle grazed. The Federal style brick farmhouse dates back to the late 1800's and has undergone some renovations over the years but the solid walnut woodwork remains and the character of the old house is strong. This picture was taken in 1910 when the farm was owned by the Rodkey family.
ABOUT HERITAGE FARM
Tim & Beth took over the farm in 1998 and named it Heritage Farm to honor their rich agricultural heritage. We wanted to main our property as a working farm, but were looking for non-traditional livestock to raise. That is when we discovered alpacas. We bought our first small herd in 2003 and have raising these wonderful creatures since. Besides running a successful livestock business our focus over the years has been to preserve the historic look of the farm and create an environment were our guests can enjoy the rural Indiana landscape of cornfields, meadows, forests and wetlands. With that in mind, we invite you to visit for a 90 minute tour, an overnight stay, booking an event or participating in one of our regularly scheduled events. Whatever the nature of your visit we promise to do our best to make it memorable!
ABOUT HERITAGE FARM
VALUING THE PAST,
BUILDING THE FUTURE
We live by our motto of valuing the rich heritage of our past while building into future generations by providing an environment where our guests can experience the enjoyment of rural living and the appreciation of farming and nature.
We want to have a wonderful stay at Heritage Farm. Our Farm is your home away from home for however long you are staying and we hope you'll be relaxed, comfortable and happy.
Our Christian faith is important to us. We have been so richly blessed with this farm and we believe that sharing it with others is what God has called us to do. We strive to show God's love to our guests by exceeding their needs and expectations and by inviting them to enjoy his beautiful creation - the sunsets, farm animals and natural landscape of the farm.
We abide by what it says in the Bible in 1 Peter 4:9-10 "Cheerfully share your home with those who need a place to stay. God has given each of us a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." We will do our best to serve you well during your visit.
In Proverbs 11:25 we are also called to "refresh others" so we truly hope you find refreshment during your stay here.
We are proud to support the alpaca industry by being active members of the following organizations. Both Tim and Beth have served as officers in the Suri Network and Indiana Alpaca Association. Beth has served on several AOA committees and is a recipient of the Shinning Star award for exceptional volunteerism.
