This farm was a participating member of the 2015 class, "Growing a New Generation of Illinois Fruit and Vegetable Farmers," a year-long class funded by the University of Illinois. The 2015 garden produced summer and winter squash, pumpkins, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, and lettuce. In 2017, a major goal of this property was to participate more fully in sustainable living initiatives, including beekeeping and vegetable growing.
