Prairiecore is based off of the life of the American pioneers and life on the prairie. Batsheva Hay describes her inspiration to be the "eccentric" tastes of her mother and grandmother. Though inspired by the U.S, Prairiecore is not limited to the United States. Like the American pioneers, this aesthetic finds power in freedom and experimenting with new things by using the old as inspiration. Its fashion has both a traditional and modern variant (Uptown Prairie). Key things are grasslands, cattle, flowers, wheat, and Pioneer related works.

Media

Although this aesthetic emerged only recently, it still has a lot of related media, usually television. Family shows like Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, and some Western films are a part of it. The stories are in the same area, with the main characters growing older and learning about life while living through an 1800s era on a farm.
