Starting in October, we will be selling off all remaining merchandise including furniture, lamps, baskets, seasonal items, giftware, and kitchenware.

Mirai sweet corn is in and it is delicious!! 🌽


If anyone can help us out with this problem, please call Dave, April, or Cathy (815-338-4343). We have lost our farm animal rental company so we are looking for 2 small friendly goats, 2 sheep, and 2 chickens for our pumpkin festival. We would need to keep them from Sept. 25 to Oct. 31. We would feed and care for them. We will pay you $500 for the 5 weeks. The children who visit us on a daily basis will provide all the love!


The produce from the fields is starting to come in: lettuce, green onions, beets, kohlrabi, and cabbage. Peas of all varieties (shells, sugar snap, snow) are abundant. Please call ahead (815-338-4343) if you want to freeze some for winter. Carrots and broccoli are close, but sad to say asparagus is ending.

**All plants, pottery, and yard furniture is on sale.


Spring is here and we are open! 8-6 everyday. We have a great selection of blooming hanging baskets and locally grown perennials. Vegetable plants include tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, kohl crops, and pumpkins. We also have strawberry and rhubarb plants. Fill your own containers with a fabulous selection of 4 inch annuals.

Asparagus just came in today and rhubarb should be coming shortly.
