We bought this house near our family and roots in Illinois when it came on the market even though our jobs will keep us in a different state for the foreseeable future. We love the chance to leave our home in congested Orange County, California, and experience the incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating farm life in beautiful rural Central Illinois. Our kids have gained so much from the freedom and responsibility they have on the farm. They have learned to milk and do many types of farm chores. Spending time here is a unique opportunity in this day and age, and one that we are happy to be able to share with you!
Grass fed local eggs, meat, and organically raised produce from Kate's Cottage Farm seasonally available for purchase.
We are a family with two school-aged children and two grown sons. Our interests include farming, gardening, music, and aviation.
The mom of the family grew up across the street from this property and has always loved the house and the pasture that makes up the six acres. When the property came up for sale in 2009, we felt fortunate to be able to buy it even though our jobs will keep us in a different state for the foreseeable future.
