Sunset Barn family farm
A small family farm located in Northwest Illinois about 10 miles from Prophetstown IL. We raise all sorts of poultry including rare and heritage breed chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, as well as a wide array of beautifully colored guineas, a pair of peafowl and a handful of quail.
Our Flock tested clean for Pullorum Disease caused by Salmonella pullorum! We are NPIP certified #1360.
We breed Giant Flemish rabbits too. They make for an exceptional friendly pet! We can't get enough of them!
Last but not least, we also enjoy raising Registered Katahdin Hair Sheep. Our flock is not large but are slowly growing it and breeding to meet and exceed breed standards. We do have breeding stock available for sale at times.
We are a local, small family farm. Supporting your local farmers supports the small town American life. These animals are not only a source of income for our family, but also our beloved pets, friends, and companions. We care for them in the cold and the rain. The hot and humid days and nurse them back to health if ill. And most of all, we give them love. So much love. We can tell you when a chicken hatched, what her name is and why we love her. This is the real deal. Up close and personal here on the farm!
We hope to hear from you!
Sunset Barn Family Farm
At Sunset Barn Family Farm, we are committed to raising healthy, happy animals in the most humane way possible! I'm a wee bit obsessed with our 2 legged, feathered friends. Some locals refer to me as the real Crazy Chicken lady! I embrace the title, but hope I'm not "too" crazy!
I am the product of 4 generations of farmers, although I left the small town life for city life back in 2000. My country roots were calling my name and after 10 years of experiencing a very different way of life, I came back home! I met my soon to be husband who grew up not far from my hometown. We married, had a couple babies, and then started our little farmstead in 2016.
My drive comes from wanting to be able to give my children all the gifts that farm life can give, The good ones, and the bad. Farm life and raising animals is not always all rainbows and cupcakes, but we wouldn't change it for the world. I love being able to share our hard work with others...so that is how I got here....selling my beloved chickens! ….and ducks, turkeys, guineas, quail, sheep, some occasional Flemish Giant Bunnies, and who knows what else may call Sunset Barn Family Farm home in the future!
