Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sun Dappled Farms is the work of two sisters who grew up in the house across the street from this property. Kate moved back home to Illinois in 2008 after living in New York City & New Jersey for over 20 years. A graduate of chef school, she became interested in grass farming in her pursuit of nutritious, delicious, and environmentally-friendly food. Sister Kris lives in Southern California but shares the passion for farming & food.

Why the Owner Chose Elmwood, IL, USA:
We had always loved the house and the pasture that makes up the six acres on this side of the road. When the property came up for sale in 2009, Kris & her husband felt fortunate to be able to buy it. We have enjoyed introducing people from around the world to our little slice of paradise.
