only two hours from the city but a world away! run by a couple that moved away from the city looking for a simpler life, david & susan now operate an established, certified-organic farm that sells produce directly to chicago chefs and farmers market customers. they grow a wide variety of greens, heirloom tomatoes, root crops and are known for their arugula. they also have plenty of pigs and chickens too! (no pigs named arnold, but you get the sense after spending time with david & susan that their life was a tv show.)
what they also have are tents provided by feather down farms. while they are "tents," these are some of the most comfortable tents you will ever experience. you can relax and do nothing, participate in the daily operation of the farm or do anything in between. there is an honor shop that has more than the basic necessities available where you can get farm fresh eggs, cow and goat milk, bacon and bratwurst from area farms and more. btw, the brats were some of the best we've ever tasted!
great for a romantic getaway or as an adventure for the family. just go.
