Hazzard Free Farm: 5111 Ahrens Rd, Pecatonica, IL (815-289-1431)
Some of Chicago’s most celebrated restaurants have been getting their grains, proteins, produce and dairy from local Midwestern farms just a short trip away for years. Why the penchant for the local? Everything from keeping money in the community to looking for quality produce to give their dishes a little extra kick. Here, we celebrate the farms supplying some of Chicago’s best restaurants and filling our plates with from-the-earth Midwestern goodness.
