    Freedom Creek Prairie in Prescott, Iowa is ready to help you with your new CRP. We specialize in quality native seed mixes at the most competitive prices available. Our seed mixes are pre-approved by NRCS to meet the requirements needed for each program practice.

    Your FSA cost share for each practice is different and can also differ between the seed you choose to use. We’d be happy to discuss this with you so you are sure of what your cost share will be.

    We give you the option of paying only 20% down to lock in the seed price,

    with the balance due when you pick up your seed. Or if we are planting it for you, it is not due until the seeding is completed.

    Let our strong work ethic and commitment to detail help you, Create Habitat as Nature Intended.

    Our Story--

    With curiosity and guidebooks in hand, back in 2004, we began a quest to search out and study remnant prairies (pieces of the original prairie) near our home in Adams County, Iowa. It soon became our passion to find a way to help these vanishing treasures survive.

    We enjoyed endless driving on country roads and searching out landowners to discuss the vast array of native forbs and grasses we found and get permission to hand collect seed. It was a treasure hunt adventure every day--GPS mapping, flagging species, and returning to collect the precious seeds that held the genetic material of the original Tallgrass prairie species.

    Sadly, each year, we watch the remnants, that we located earlier, deteriorate and, some, just cease to exist due to the encroachment of introduced grasses, weeds, herbicides, trees, and disturbance.

    Our seed stock came directly from the natural plants that dominated the landscape of pre-settlement Iowa. Now, they can flourish and become, NOT a part of our past, but a part of YOUR life and garden for generations to come.

    Our family is at the heart of this project; our two daughters, grandsons, and even, Rick’s sister!

    It is our hope, to inspire a love for the beauty and historic nature that our tallgrass prairie once graciously laid across the landscape of our region.
