WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The executive director of The Farm at Prophetstown is retiring after serving since April of 2015.

The farm located just outside of Battle Ground is known for its authentic farm life. The workers there raise cattle, horses, and host an assortment of activities for all ages.

The Executive director says after suffering from severe arthritis she decided to retire from her position.
"This is a real farm, this is not a pretend farm so it involves lifting straw hay bales, wrestling a cow- if we need to. So I had to come to the decision that this was something I was no longer able to physically do," said Conwell
While at The Farm, Conwell helped restore the entire farmstead and created multiple events that are popular with visitors.

Conwell says her goal was to create an environment - perfect for all ages!
"We have all worked so hard together. The volunteers, staff, board, the visitors and farm staff to create memories for families. We're a very real farm here so people are getting a glimpse of historical Indiana," said Conwell.

Upcoming events for The Farm at Prophetstown are baseball history, soap making, and baking bread
