FAQs about Visiting the Farm


Can I visit the farm unannounced and wander about?

We like to make the farm available to our CSA Shareholders -- those who have signed up to receive a weekly delivery of our vegetables for the season -- whenever it is convenient for them. However, since we farmers are exceedingly busy and must focus on the daily responsibilities and duties of the farm, we are not available give tours or to show shareholders the land or buildings. Shareholders are welcome to roam the grounds for themselves when they wish, but our availability may be limited to pointing you in the direction of highlights which you are encouraged to go explore on your own, keeping farm safety considerations in mind (we do have a special orientation sheet and map to help you out--ask someone around the big barn for a copy).

We do request that shareholders phone in advance (to 815 389 2746, ideally at least 4 hours before) to let us know that you'll be around--leave a message if no one answers the phone.

Non-Shareholders and Real Dirt Film Fans are not allowed to visit the farm unannounced and roam around--they are encouraged to select one of their options as described in the Visit Our Farm page.

Of course, there is always the opportunity to get to know the farm through volunteering to work with us; it gives shareholders a more intimate understanding of how the farm works and the people that grow their food.



Can I arrange to have a tour of the farm?

Please see our Visit Our Farm Page for touring options.


I am thinking about becoming a shareholder, can I visit the farm before I sign up?

Yes, but it would be as a non-shareholder or as a Real Dirt Film Fan. Review the visiting options for these two groups at our Visit Our Farm Page.


How do I get to the farm? Is there a map?

The farm is about

  1. 2 hours from downtown Chicago

  2. 30-45 minutes from Rockford

  3. 30 minutes from Belvidere

  4. 20 minutes from Rockton or Beloit

  5. 15 minutes from Roscoe

Visits and tours for prospective shareholders are generally discouraged unless within the structure as described at the Visit Our Farm page. All prospective visitors are encouraged to review this link. A PDF version of the map may be downloaded by clicking here, but please follow these visiting guidelines.


Do you sell produce directly of the farm? Can I stop by to purchase some vegetables?

No to both questions. Unfortunately, we do not sell any produce directly off of our farm at any time. Our farm focuses on selling and delivering entire, season long shares of organic produce directly to local families and individuals (who we refer to as shareholders).
