Thanks for submitting!

So how do you get our flowers? Great question! We are a seasonal business, operating between May and October, with evergreen sales in November. Our Online Store has our current offerings. We do pickup and deliveries to Canton-Lewistown-Havana Tuesday - Thursday and sell at the Peoria Riverfront Farmer's Market on Saturdays. Florals for special events, including weddings and funeral arrangements, available upon request--we can accommodate any budget! Thank you!

The farm sits on a bluff overlooking Emiquon Nature Preserve and the bottom of the Spoon River Valley, an area rich in history and natural beauty. Our glamping accommodations include a round bell tent with a bed, a solar panel to plug in your phones, solar fan, grill, hammock and flush toilets. Come stay!

 
OUR STORY

Black Sheep Farm is a working flower farm perched on the bluffs of the Illinois River. Beyond growing high quality, chemical-free cut flowers, we provide glamping accommodations for people who enjoy being immersed in nature. Surrounded by flower fields, with a beautiful view of restored prairies and wetlands, our guests are welcome to explore the natural beauty and rich history of the Spoon River Valley.

Ben has been landscaping, gardening, and growing organic vegetables and cut flowers in various parts of the country for over 15 years. In the winter, he works as a Freelance Florist in New Orleans and beyond, specializing in high-end weddings. His passion for nature has caused him to feel right at home on these beautiful bluffs.

As a New Orleans cabaret owner for 10 years (AllWays Lounge), Dennis built a unique, magical space from the ground up. The club became an institution for showcasing live performance in a city known for entertainment. A native of Lewistown, he is now using these skills to turn our flower farm into a unique tourist destination.

April 20, 2022

I am BACK IN ILLINOIS!!! I´ve been busy sowing seeds in trays and in the field, prepping beds and even transplanting. It´s been a dreary, cold spring but the daffodils are blooming and the redbuds are about to pop, so we are finally headed towards the great Flower March of Spring. This year we are focusing on developing the landscape at the land and diversifying some of the ways we sell flowers. It all starts with Mother´s Day Bouquets as well as Flower Shares, both up on the webstore. Mother´s Day is limited to Fulton County (Lewistown to Canton, points in between) and Havana. Dennis will join me a little later, when it´s time to set up the glamping sight. Days are getting longer, tulips are budding up, the grass needs cutting (ha!) SPRING HAS ARRIVED!!
