our story

Founded in 2015 by Gray & Jodi McNally, Vintage Prairie Farm is a chef-driven collaboration between some of Chicago’s finest restaurants and a team of mindful farmers. 

The Farm is operated by the principles of biodiversity, ecological balance, compost fertilization, all natural pest control, sustainability, and healthy soil life.

We are committed to growing heirloom varietals that represent the true colors and flavors of ancient vegetables as nature intended. These varietals are more difficult to grow and less prolific than the standard mass produced, mono-cropped, and GMO vegetables. The extra effort to source the seeds, cultivate the land, and nurture these plants is evident in the taste, texture, color, and nutrition of VPF produce.
