Million Dollar view! Stargazer and birdwatcher dream! Stay in this whimsical tiny cabin tucked in the woods in the corner of a chemical free flower farm. The farm sits on a bluff overlooking the Illinois and Spoon River Valleys. Feel free to explore the property or strap a kayak to the car and drive down to Emiquon to explore the wetlands. Keep the car parked and hike the trails at Dickson Mounds State Park just across the street. We aim to provide an affordable, safe space for people to feel free to be themselves and enjoy nature. Chill Vibes.

NEWS & EVENTS
July 6, 2023
Here we are on the other side of a drought that lasted nearly as long as our planting season. It was rough, as we grow most of our flowers in the field and rely on rain. We are popping in some last minute seeds to try to improve our fall, and we're extremely grateful for 5 days of on-and-off rain, the perfect way to saturate the soil.
Casual Bouquets and Stunning Arrangements are on the webshop. We do deliveries to Canton, WeeMaTuk and Havana EVERY TUESDAY!
Check us out at the Riverfront Farmer's Market in Peoria Saturdays through September. I just made a beautiful silkscreen for our merch, and can't wait to start printing shirts and canvas bags for y'all!
