Come visit us at the Kilgus Farmstead Country Store where you can purchase our products fresh from the farm! Our store is located on the Kilgus farm, 1 mile south of Fairbury, IL on 1st street. You will find all of our farmstead milk products as well as our farm-raised quality meats: Jersey beef, Berkshire pork, and Boer goat meat. We also source a diverse and growing number of locally-made, high quality products that complement our own. If you visit early on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, you can see the milk bottling process in action through the viewing window to our on-farm creamery! We also give tours in the Spring, Summer, and fall  — see the Our Farm Tours page to schedule your tour.
