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 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, Dennis Monn 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.

NEWS & EVENTS

October 31, 2022

The season is over! We planted dozens more peonies and irises for the spring, divided perennials and mowed down this year´s annuals. I´m trying tulips in crates this year and will once again grow ranunculus, pre-sprouted in very late winter. I also saved a lot more seed than usual, which I can use outside of the production garden as we expand our perennial plantings throughout the landscape. Next year we are planning to build our first tiny cabin, a permanent shower and some fencing and trellising for vertical crops. For now, we are starting to switch gears as we head into winter.

Stay warm!
