Free range chicken eggs are now available for our customers. These are from our neighbor who is state inspected and licensed. Look at that interesting color. These will not be available at the farmers market on Saturdays since they are not raised on our farm by us.

Something for everyone this Saturday from 4 Lees Farm
Illinois State Fair Spotlight: Devin Cave of 4 Lees Farm in rural Virginia. 4-H vegetable exhibitor. 4 Lees Farm 4 Lees Farm is a multi-generational family farm currently owned and operated by Mitch and Stephanie Cave. Aug. 18, 2021
For years, IEC has used legislative farm tours as a key part of our outreach and relationship building with Illinois’ legislators; taking them to see sustainable agriculture in practice right in their own backyard helps to show not only the benefits of regenerative agriculture but that it’s a priority for their constituents as well. COVID-19 put a damper on our farm tours for a little while, but at long last we’re back at it! IEC’s conservation team is ramping up our tour game yet again-- take a look at our team, friends at Illinois Stewardship Alliance and State Senator Jil Tracy on tour here at 4 Lees Farm, a four-generation farm raising grass-finished beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken, and organic produce the way great-grandpa did. It is important to have clean food produced locally, which is why IEC makes an effort to show our elected officials the value of local, sustainable farms like 4 Lees. You can learn more about our legislative tours program and why they’re so valuable in this IEC blog post: https://ilenviro.org/bringing-lawmakers-out-of-their-office-buildings-and-into-nature/
Just a few snaps from our legislative farm tour yesterday with State Senator Jil Tracy out at 4 Lees Farm in Virginia, IL. Farmer Mitchell Cave and fam toured us around the farm where they raise grassfed beef, happy pigs, and cage-free poultry, along with a myriad of vegetables and cherry tomatoes (daughter Devon's FFA project!) Mitch shared the story about why he loves farming and the opportunities and issues facing small farms like his. During the tour we discussed: How the pandemic affected the farm and exacerbated livestock processing issues. The closest place to process chickens is over 2 hours away! And farms like his are still having trouble booking dates for pork and beef processing. For some producers, they're having to book dates for animals that aren't even born. We discussed potential solutions, like herd-share laws that would give farmers access to more small processors, and the need for more support to help small processors grow, which will strengthen our supply chains. Mitch also discussed the importance of the new cooperative grocery store, Market on the Hill Cooperative, that jut opened up in Mt. Pulaski to combat the food desert in their community. While larger grocery chains aren't interested in sourcing from small farms, cooperative and independent grocery stores often seek out local items and value supporting area farmers and keeping food dollars and economic wealth within their communities. They provide a stable market for farmers like Mitch to sell their product (unlike farmers market sales which are often seasonal). Unfortunately, there are only 9 cooperatively-owned grocery stores in the state of Illinois. We discussed the need for more state support and technical assistance to help more cooperative grocery stores and food hubs get off the ground in Illinois. Finally, we also touched on the need to shift the state food procurement code to insure that taxpayer dollars being spent on food contracts value local, fair, healthy, humane, and sustainable farms and businesses in or state. A change in procurement policy could shift millions of taxpayer dollars to support local farms and businesses, which could help farms like Mitch's to grow, while also building economic wealth in our state. Many thanks to Mitch and fam for sharing their passion and stories, and to Senator Tracy for so graciously listening! We look forward to continuing the conversation on shifting policy to help Illinois farmers feed Illinois, and build the health and wealth of Illinois communities. More legislative farm tours are on the docket! Stay tuned!
