Welcome to Brook Farm

Located in the center of the Big Foot Prairie in McHenry County, Brook Farm is part of two former dairy farms on land pioneered in the 1840′s.  The farm’s rich prairie soils developed in parent materials left by the departing Wisconsin ice sheet.  Only a few regions around the world match the quality of this farmland.

Suburban development has still not encroached on the prairie, and the sweeping view of the vast Woodstock-Marengo moraine several miles to the east of the farm remains largely unobstructed.  Even though the farm is not far from one of the world’s great metropolitan regions, you’ll have the sense of being in the midst of rural America at Brook Farm.

Farmers Rich and Sonja have been farming on this same acreage near Harvard, Illinois since 1974.  They have built the Brook Farm farming operation from the ground up including building the greenhouse and barn by hand.  They pride themselves on the reputation they have gained for their high quality flowers and delicious vegetables.
