LOCAVORE FARM

pronounced /ˈlōkəˌvôr/

 

A locavore /ˈlōkəˌvôr/ is a person whose diet consists only or principally of locally grown or produced food. Local food is food that is produced within a short distance of where it is consumed!  In 2015, the Jones family introduced the region to a locavore’s table; a very long table - just over 100’-feet. Each seat at the table would serve as the end-point of the farm’s entire agricultural operation, beginning with a seed planted and ending with a feast. Guests who Dine on the Land sit at a Locavore’s table set just steps from where each ingredient had its beginning.In addition to their signature dining event, Locavore Farm offers educational experiences to encourage good stewardship and skills in homesteading, backyard gardening cooking and knowledge in food nutrition.

After seven bountiful years, Locavore Farm has expanded its five-acre operation to include a 30-acre estate, just 2.2 miles down the road. Locavore Farm owns and operates Sumac Creek Farms, a climate-friendly farm and location for Locavore’s dining and educational experiences as well as overnight retreats (Coming Soon) and extended farm stays (Coming Soon). 

 

Locavore Farm is located at 16146 E. County Line Road, Grant Park, IL 60940. This location hosts: Thursday (Experiences), General Store and The Honest Farmstand, CSA Program, Victory Garden Kit, Wholesale Cut-Flower Program, Educational Camps, Workshops and several private events.
