Field Days for Shareholders

Farm Address: 1547 Rockton Rd, Caledonia, IL 61011

Usually Held on the 3rd Saturday in July and the 3rd Saturday in September.

No Field Days this Fall, But…

We will not host our regularly scheduled Field Day on the third Saturday of September, due to the pandemic, but you are welcome to come whenever to gather pumpkins and gourds from the trailer near the farmstead, up to 3 pumpkins and 10 gourds per family. During that visit, please help yourself to flowers from our gloriously abloom U-Pick garden. Make sure to bring your own clippers and container for gathering flowers. Please review our U-Pick garden page before coming.

For Shareholders, their close Friends, and other Friends of the Farm Only
If you are not a Shareholder, a Shareholder’s Friend, or Friend of the Farm, and you really, really want to attend, see if you can get an invitation from us by writing email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Who’s a Friend of the Farm?
You’ll know if you qualify.

Heads Up: if you don’t bring a dish, you can’t join us for the potluck.

Bring the Kids
Kids love the farm! (But unfortunately you can’t bring your pets.)


11 a.m to 12:30 p.m: Arrive
Park along the drive. (It’s usually extra busy here before 11, so we don’t recommend showing up early.) Check in at the big barn.

Mingling, Hayrides, Exploring
There will be hayrides before lunch–hop on to a wagon and see everything growing. Explore the farm. 

12:30 p.m  to 1:30 p.m: Potluck–Please bring a large dish to pass
* The dishes at our Field Days are always phenomenal, whether carnivore, vegetarian or vegan (or rich desserts), but sometimes we run short on food–this is not to be on a farm that is all about food! Please bring a dish that will serve at least 8-10 people.

* Bring the recipe that goes with your dish; recipes accompanying dishes are a hit. Put your name & your delivery site on the recipe, so admirers can track you down & lavish you with praise. (10 copies on 3×5 cards would be great.)

* Please bring your own beverage. We furnish some tables and chairs. Consider bringing a blanket on which to picnic, so we don’t have to provide so many chairs.

1:45 p.m to 2:30 p.m: CSA Meeting
Offer suggestions about Food & Farming. Sometimes there is entertainment at this time. Check Farm News in the weeks leading up to the Field Day for announcements of a special Field Day event.

3 p.m to 4 p.m: One More Hayride
