Established in 1993, Joy of Illinois Farm is a very small farm which sells directly to the consumer.

We offer unprocessed goat milk; free-range eggs; and live sheep, goats, small black hogs, turkeys, geese, and chickens.

New this year is an offering of classes, events, and mentoring to share with you the enjoyment of the farm and wealth of experience we’ve accumulated. We’re also setting up a dedicated back porch “distribution point” on the north side of the house, so that customers no longer have to compete with laundry, tools, coats, and boots in our mud room!

Order promptly as quantities and spaces are limited; once we are sold out we'll put you on our waiting list and/or try to refer you to another farm in our ever-widening network of small producers.

We can transport livestock (sheep, goats, pigs) to Arends Meats in Ivesdale for processing. Processing fees are not included in the liveweight price. New this year—Arends asks that we collect their flat fee for sheep and goats from you, pay them, pick up your meat, and have you pick up at our place.

Pickup for poultry, live or dressed, is at the farm only. Sorry, we do not ship or deliver poultry.
