Heartland Farm open for harvest festival Saturday

If gentle, humming alpacas and a romp around farm and pasture aren't enough to tempt the family into the car for a drive in the country Saturday, maybe checking out a "chicken tractor" or visiting a Scottish Highlands steer will. They'll all be on hand at the annual Harvest Festival Open Farm Day at Heartland Farms, operated by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. The event will happen, rain or shine, Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at their 80-acre farmstead 14 miles west of Great Bend in Rush County.
