A little bit of land + a lot of big ideas = 8 Point Farm.

We’re located in the Fox River valley of northern Illinois, near the confluence of the Fox and Illinois Rivers. For now, we’re experimenting — with permaculture, sustainable and small-scale (very small) farming, rain harvesting, orcharding, and beekeeping.

Plus a few chickens.

We’d like to meet others in the area doing similar things, so if you’re interested in collaborating or sharing ideas, leave a reply and say hello.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Congrats on the website/blog.
    The photograph ‘y is outstanding. Who’s the ‘er?
    That green thing looks weird – looks like a leaf on his back.
    Can I come by later and see the new and recovering chicks?

    • Thanks! Been mostly me on ‘er duty this summer, but Octavia has taken a bunch too.
      And come by any time to see the chickens. They like the company.
