We have five sons who learned to love gardening from their grandfather. Our family grows a garden every year and is very interested in farming. I write for three different blogs, including a food blog, Chicago Foodie Sisters.
Seven generations have occupied the approximately 1100-acre land of the Adams Farm and to start our visit we gathered in an old barn that was built by the grandfather of our host, Alan Adam. We sipped on hot cocoa and tea and sat on hay bales while Alan gave us a rundown on how things work there where they have about 60 head on their calf farm and then another 900 or so head on their feed lot.
