Heirloom Vegetables


Heirloom vegetables take us back to an earlier time, when food was wonderfully flavorful. We use seeds exclusively from companies who pledge not to sell genetically modified organisms (GMO) or saved and propagated from our own selections. These often endangered varieties offer a unique, robust flavor unlike any grocery store variety.

Typical seasonal offerings might include:


  • Onion greens in March

  • Baby parsnips in April

  • Pea shoots in May

  • Radish pods in June

  • Sweet peppers in July

  • Tomatoes in August

  • Eggplant in September


Sweet potatoes from the Farm are a selection grown by family ancestors.  The sunchokes grown here are a North American native variety.  All the vegetables are open pollinated by the wind or the many pollinators that call Prairie Birthday Farm their home.

"Tell me of what plant birthday a man takes notice, and I shall tell you a good deal about his vocation, his hobbies, his hay fever, and the general level of his ecological education."
