2020 has been a monumental year for Next to Nature Farm. We've been hard at work at accomplishing a goal we've been working on for over three years now - opening our Agricultural Education Center at our farm! This weekend, May 8, we will accomplish that goal. Given that our world is grappling with a pandemic, we want to do this safely and cautiously for our family and your family. We are going to open the farm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for now and we hope to expand as demand grows and we feel it is safe to do so.
When planning your visit, make sure to prepare to be on a farm (wear comfortable shoes and casual clothes). We have goats, chickens, peacocks, bee hives, and a fantastically friendly goat dog named Sadie. At the agricultural and educational center, we will offer various classes and learning opportunities to find out more about bees, canning/preserving foods, pollinators, and small-scale agriculture. We will have a variety of products for sale, depending on the season. We are also home to "Kansas' only honey tasting bar" where you can try our delicious local honey, over a dozen varieties of infused and creamed honeys, and exotic flavors of honey from other regions.
To our family, friends, long-time customers, we thank you for your continued support. This adventure grew from a passion for doing something "real" and a desire to love what we do and how we do it. We are blessed with the ability to honor our planet, our value system, and God with the work we do.
Simple. Honest. Next to Nature.
