I just completed the second "Preparing a New Generation of Illinois Fruit and Vegetable Farmers" class at the Kane County Extension office. Oh how I love these classes. Once a month we meet for 6 hours and learn. Learn about the thing I love most. Farming! We have about 32 students from all over Illinois. Once I'm finished in November, I will be able to understand everything about growing in Illinois.
This is a picture from Mayneland Farm down the road from us. His chicken pen. Mr. Mayne has 14 - 15 acres of some beautiful Naperville Farm land. Hard to find a farm in Naperville and this one is 1/2 mile away.
