Our Farm Store: The Real Stand

Our Farm Store "The Real Stand" features locally-grown and sustainably-raised farm products from the region. We offer our own award-winning cheeses, creamy goat milk gelato and seasonal accompaniments from our farm kitchen (jams, pickled veggies, savory condiments). We support other farms who share our values of building a robust, healthy and responsible local food system.

The farm store is open during our regular farm open hours. These change according to the seasons. Current Farm Hours are Fridays, 4-8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 pm. 

We feature local meats (beef, pork, chicken and lamb) raised on pasture from Bane Family Meats (Sidney IL).  Try some farm fresh eggs from Bane Family Meats or sometimes from our own flock of laying hens. We also carry frozen artisan sausages and dry cured meats (salamis and charcuterie) by Piemonte Sausage Co and Underground Meats. NEW in the shop, locally-milled flours from The Mill at Janie's Farm

Pick up local honey from Two Million Blooms or tart "Autumn Berry" Jam to accompany our cheeses.  

In summer and fall, we sometimes have local fruits and veggies for sale.  We also feature PFF&C "merch" (t-shirts, hoodies, onesies,  tea-towels, tote bags and more) and wares from local artisans. 

In season, you can enjoy a scoop of our artisanal goat-milk gelato too! Our flavors change with the seasons and feature locally grown fruits, nuts and herbs, as well as traditional Italian flavors.

We're now featuring "build your own" cheese boards. You select your cheeses and accompaniments (salamis, pickles, jams, honey) and a wedge of locally made baguette bread. We'll provide you with a cheese board and knives so you can cut up your cheeses and salamis.  Pick out a wine (by the glass or bottle) from our organic/biodynamic portfolio or a local micro-brewed beer and carry your customized cheese board out to the patio and enjoy the serenity of the farm. You'll feel like you've been transported to another country.

How about an affogato (gelato +espresso)? It's the best iced coffee float you'll ever try? Don't want the caffeine? Try a root-beer float or an adult version with one of our local microbrews.  We like to make you happy.
