Posted 9/10/2013 9:35pm by Leslie Cooperband or Wes Jarrell.


We've got summer weather but fall fruit to pick, so we're hosting another open house-on-farm sale and u-pick TOMORROW--WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11TH--FROM 4:00 TO 6:30PM.  

We will have cheese (chevre, feta, bloomies, sheep milk blue, Moonglo and Eldon) and gelato (pints only) for sale as well as loads and loads of scrumptious heirloom tomatoes. You can cool off with bottle of authentic soda by Homer Soda company too.  Need some tempting on the gelato front?

  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Mint
  • Hazelnut
  • Cucumber Lime Mint (this will cool you down)
  • Butter Pecan
  • Pumpkin Pie (like I said, it should be fall)
  • Pineapple Sage (it's an herb infusion that has hints of pineapple and beautiful herbal notes)
  • Espresso

Stewart (Artisan Breads) will have a few loaves of bread on hand to sell as well.  We'll be offering u-pick of Moonglo Pears and a couple of apple varieties.  Come on out! It's cooler out here in the country for sure.  

Eastern Illinois Fundraiser with Master Chef Rick Bayless: Ticket sales are picking up, so if you've been considering this donation, I would recommend moving on it before they're gone.  Childhood hunger is real and widespread right in our own backyard, so plesae consider making this generous donation to this very worthy cause.  You'll get an unforgettable meal and meet one of America's most inspirational chefs as a bonus!  Click on this link to make your purchase. 

Tickets to our fall "Fork in the Road Tasting Trail" are now on sale as well. This tour, scheduled for Sunday, September 22nd (12-5PM), starts at our farm, goes on to KD Ranch-Sugar Shack Antiques in Oakwood (bison, long-horn cattle, elk) and ends at Sleepy Creek Vineyard with a full tasting of ALL of their wines (accompanied by a cheese and cured meats platter); all for the VERY reasonable price of $35 per ticket.  Less than half the places remain, so don't delay.
