Event goers will have the opportunity to experience the prairie in many ways; from riding through it on a horse pulled wagon, to learning about native prairie birds and snakes, to observing the local plants and pollinators with magnifying lenses and binoculars on the observation plat form.

Artisanal Food:

We are highlighting local producers and farmers by serving Fox Valley made food with an end of summer flair.  We will be offering grilled sweetcorn from Oakridge Farms, root beer floats made with Stone Cellar Brewpub root beer and Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, fresh squeezed lemonade, and drizzled apples from Schroeder’s Orchard with Heckrodt and other local honey (bring a blanket to picnic on).


We’ll be hosting Armchair Boogie on the Prairie Hootenanny and they’ll be performing on a stage that is back-dropped by our 7 acre prairie.  They’ll be playing from 12:15-2:45 ish. Armchair Boogie are originally a Stevens Point based band that enjoys playing bluegrass to funk to folk.  They deliver a dynamic performance that is always original.
