Florals for special events, including weddings and funeral arrangements, available upon request--we can accommodate any budget! Thank you!
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.
Black Sheep Farm is a working flower farm perched on the bluffs of the Illinois River.

NEWS & EVENTS
Nov 13 2023
Here we are almost 2 months from our last update and the autumn magic is still going strong! I can't remember such a long, mild fall with such colorful foliage. Our season is over, so we are slowly wrapping things up out at the farm and enjoying being outside while it's still lovely. The season ended with our first u-pick, first flower bar, first marigold sales for Day of the Dead. We so enjoyed hosting market customers, local folks, and IL master gardeners at the farm, we plan to do a lot more events out there next year!
Although our fresh flowers are done, we're running our annual Holiday Season Sale for 2024 Flower Shares!!
It's a wonderful gift, weekly fresh flowers, to receive from a loved one that lives far away. Pick up or delivery for folks in Lewistown, Havana and Canton (delivery incl Cuba, WeeMaTuk, St David). Delivery slots are LIMITED so if that's important, hurry! Pick-up is cheaper and available in half-seasons. We love doing these for y'all, and have done them from the very beginning. Thank you all past Flower Share members, your support has been a blessing.
Stay warm this winter!
