Just beginning to press the grapes into wine, we are in year one and have three wine offerings under the license of our good friends at Revasser Winery. Plans are underway to build the Walker Homestead barn which will be home to our winery and tasting room on the homestead.  For now you can buy Walker Homestead wine at the New Pioneer Food Co-ops in Cedar Rapids, Coralville or Iowa City  or at Revasser Winery in Ainsworth, Iowa.

Help Us Grow

Since purchasing the "North 80" in May 2017, we planted 12 acres of pasture, a 3 acre vegetable garden, 50 acres of soy beans, 600 grape vines, and reclaimed a barn foundation into our herb garden.

Next steps:

  • Hold farm stand/tours through Spring & Fall

  • Host farm to table harvest dinners

  • Build winery & agriculture education center

  • Add sheep, goats, Scottish highland cows, lama, and pigs to our expanding flock of meat and egg laying chickens
