About Us

Our Story


Happy Apple's Farm is cared for by us, Brent and Patti Ragsdale. Founded in 2015, the farm is named in memory of the late Vivian Ragsdale (the original Happy Apple) and it's dedicated to engaging people of all ages in exploring and learning about the natural world.

Native Plants


We grow and sell plants that are native to North America and naturally adapted to our region. The gardens around our home display most of the native plants we grow to help our customers understand how these beautiful plants perform in home landscapes.



We have seven alpacas who graze our small prairie pasture. We use their amazingly soft fiber to create yarn, roving and felt. They also give us awesome material for our compost. But the best thing about them is definitely their personality.

Off Season

What an amazing season! As colder temperatures settle in, we have suspended regular business hours until Spring. Of course, we’re available for consultations during this time. But mostly we’ll be busy gathering and processing seeds and growing fresh plants for 2020. Many thanks to all of our returning customers and our new visitors for making our year such a success. See you in the Spring!
