Welcome To Spring Valley Farm
Spring Valley Farm ... An Old Fashioned Farm
Tucked away in the rolling hills of northwestern Illinois, we are very fortunate to be living out our lifelong dream of rural life, country living and raising our family in a natural way.
Spring Valley Farm is home to many creatures. We raise Jersey cows for their milk, breeding stock and natural beef. Alpacas are raised for their fiber which we sell in raw form as well as processed into roving, yarns and finished goods. Naturally grown chicken and eggs are out of this world. Belgian horses were the tractors of olden days. Although we do have modern tractors, our horses do their share of work around the farm, too.
We're dedicated to operating this farm organically, although we aren't certified. We are firm believers that we are here to take care of the land and the animals that live here. As we also eat what we grow, which includes our own vegetables, we want to grow the most nutritious and delicious foods we can. We eat our own meats, eggs, vegetables and even our raw milk. Our hopes are to have a successful diversified "stock" portfolio that we can hand down to our children some day.
Life has a funny way of changing things up when you least expect it. We've decided to cut back and take life a little slower. We're concentrating our efforts on our family and enjoying life.
