North West Herald Article published in May of 2023

In 2005, we began the restoration and transformation of our 6.25 acre corn/soybean field to a "Natives Haven."  Our labor of love has been very rewarding, as we have witnessed the return of a wide variety of butterflies, including countless monarchs, as well as other pollinators who are drawn to native plants.  Many species of birds are also very attracted to the wildflowers, and we are proud to say that we have created a sanctuary they now call home where they enjoy an abundant source of food and nesting habitat provided by the native plants. 


We opened the doors to Natives Haven Nursery in 2016.
