Prairie Loft

4705 DLD Road
Hastings, NE 68901


Located just west of Hastings, Nebraska, the beautiful barns were once part of a working farm that fed over one thousand people. Buildings on site are currently undergoing renovations to provide energy-efficient, multi-purpose space for programs and events. Prairie Loft is maintained as a demonstration site for wise use of natural resources to the greatest extent possible. Operational funding and in-kind support comes from individual donors and from local and national businesses, foundations and corporations. Currently, approximately 30% of our income comes from earned revenue from facility rental and event admission fees.


Prairie Loft’s mission is to teach agriculture appreciation, outdoor education, cultural traditions, and the wise use of natural resources.
