A day at Rock Creek Farm

This week, the Rock Creek Farmhouse was designated a historic landmark and the Midwestern contingent of the Iroquois Valley team hosted a socially distant gathering to celebrate. The house is one of 57 historic landmarks in Will County, Illinois.

Last spring, Iroquois Valley planted 10,000 trees at Rock Creek to create a windbreak. The trees planted at this event replaced some that had not made it through the hot and dry spells over the summer.

At the event, the team planted trees and enjoyed a meal cooked by Dan Weiland, a Chicago-based chef. He shares, “As a chef, your meals are only as great as the ingredients you use. I had the privilege of cooking at Rock Creek for some wonderful people who brought some amazing meats, grains, and produce. To know where your food comes from creates a greater connection and respect for the environment and for the hard working people who grow it.”

In the future, we plan to host events at Rock Creek for folks interested in agroforestry and organic agriculture.
