Heartland Farm's Spiritual Retreat Center is an operation of the Dominican Sisters of Peace who believe in the integration of mind, body, and spirit. We raise alpacas for their fleece, chickens for fresh farm eggs, and we grow organic food in our gardens Spring through Fall. We welcome you to schedule a tour or retreat. View our website at to learn more. We also accept volunteers year round. Overnight volunteers work in exchange for free room and board.

Heartland Farm is located 13 miles west of Great Bend, Kansas in rural Rush County. Surrounded by vistas of farms and the great sky, this beautiful setting offers space for retreat and renewal, study and prayer, learning and creative expression.

The farm consists of an eighty acre homestead with organic gardens, crop lands and pastures, a prairie labyrinth and many trails. A wooded creek traverses the land and two ponds offer habitat for the native species that dwell here. We also have 2 straw bale buildings, one an art studio and the other a hermitage. See photos on our Facebook page.
