We raise chickens, Leicester Longwool sheep, turkeys, vegetables, and fruit. We strive to produce high quality, delicious food by farming our land sustainably. Although we are not certified, we use organic growing practices. We provide high-quality pasture for all of our animals, and care for our animals humanely. No GMOs are used or grown on the farm.
Our Farm Name
The name Seven Sisters was chosen by two of the seven sisters who grew up on the farmstead in the 1930s, Billie Rector and Bobbie Brown (nee West). The house and farm had been owned by the West family since 1850. We purchased the property from one of Bobbie and Billie’s nephew in 2007, and the family has kindly made us feel welcome on the land.
We are proud members of Buy Fresh Buy Local.
WE OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF PRODUCTS
We sell grass-fed lamb, pasture-raised broilers and turkeys, eggs from free-range hens, and seasonal fruits and vegetables. In addition to food, we sell wool fleece, handspun yarn in natural and dyed colors, and yarns spun and dyed to order.
We sell many of our products during the farmers’ market season at Urbana’s Market at the Square. Stop by the Seven Sisters/South Prairie Street Farm stand for more information–we’d love to meet you!
