Secret Gems -Lake County Farm Tour

Hello my fellow food growers! Liberty Prairie Conservancy is putting on an incredible tour of some wonderful diverse farms in Lake County. Tony Titus, a third generation farmer from Mundelein, will entertain you with wonderful stories as you travel from farm to farm. I highly recommend you consider attending this event, as it will bring lasting memories of the days gone by AND of the future of farming the northern Illinois.

Cheryl Pytlarz, Edible Harvest Festival Coordinator


We all love to see them from the road, and we bemoan the loss of each and every one, but do you ever wonder just what happens on a Lake County farm these days? Treat yourself to a summer’s evening at some of our most notable farms and meet the gracious families who run them. Tony Titus, past president of the Lake County Farm Bureau, hosts this private tour of the centennial Lodesky Farm of Gurnee, the centennial Wirtz Farm of Mundelein and the Sandhill Organics Farm of Grayslake. We’ll travel by bus and finish with a scrumptious dinner prepared from locally grown food.
