This is gonna be sweet
Bring your family for the first-annual Honey Harvest Festival at Heritage Farm and learn how honey is gathered and harvested. The beekeeper is on hand to demonstrate beekeeping and to answer questions.
Explore the pioneer farm, learn about early farms in Illinois, and how the settlers brought honeybee hives from Europe, introducing honeybees to North America.
Meet Byron the Bee
Take a hayride through the Clyde James Prairie and the Jarrett Prairie to safely see working beehives. Food trucks, vendors, and their bee mascot, Byron the Bee!
