We all deserve to live in a sustainable world with access to nutritious and delicious food. We started Fox at the Fork to create connections between the food we eat, the land we live on, and the community that surrounds us. We are passionate about working toward a more equitable and resilient food system in Illinois. We aim to grow food in a way that helps heal the world and create a sustainable planet for future generations.
Our farm name is rooted in the relationships that encircle us. The Fox represents our dog, Penny, who keeps a watchful eye over all farm operations. The Fork refers to the creek, Forked Creek, that connects our farm to adjacent waterways and beyond. These connections keep us grounded and inspire us to design a system of local food production that grows in harmony with our environment.
Our farm is located on the ancestral lands of the Kickapoo, Peoria, Miami, Potawotami, and Kaskaskia tribes.
