The "Route 24" corridor that runs like a narrow (2-lane) belt across the mid-section of Central Illinois is sprouting more and more organic acres. We recently spoke with a family near Forrest, IL and learned of a great opportunity for a beginning farmer. Available immediately is a two bedroom home with about 3 acres ready to be planted. The property also features a large building with a concrete floor and garage doors that could be used for packing vegetables, assembling beehives, or whatever you are interested in doing. An additional 4-5 acres is available across the road. The second property includes a barn, some fenced pasture, several sheds, and an area suitable for an orchard. If you'd like to know more, please email The Land Connection or call (217) 688-2570.
