What's the Story?

Hello!  Welcome to Kinnikinnick Farm.

Kinnikinnick Farm began years ago in Chicago.  It was a dream that Susan and I shared with each other. The dream became a reality in 1994 when we started a small half acre garden on some rolling farmland overlooking the north branch of the Kinnikinnick Creek in northern Illinois.


Now Kinnikinnick Farm is an established, certified, organic farm that sells produce directly to Chicago chefs and farmers market customers.  The farm grows a wide variety of greens, heirloom tomatoes, root crops, and seasonal vegetables starting with asparagus and snap peas in the Spring and ending with butternut squash and sun-chokes in the Fall.  We are particularly fond of Italian varieties. Many of our seeds come from small seed companies in Italy.


We also raise pastured Poultry and Pork. 


To make a reservation for our small Farm Stay program, please check the calendar on our Stay on the Farm page for information and any available dates.


Check our Products link for information on Farmer's Markets and Restaurants where you can find our products.


Please feel free to look around.  And, if you have questions, send Susan and me an email.
