Feels like you're in the country. Lovely 1920's farm house built by the Carbondale Trainmaster. This is a 19 acre working produce farm just one mile from the SIU arena. Borders Marberry Arboretum. Nearby Arnold's Market for all your weekend needs.
Completely refurbished after a fire in 2013, this beautiful home is quite comfortable. We are working on the exterior and immediate grounds to give you more space to relax and enjoy yourself. The area offers wineries, craft brewers, numerous hiking adventures in the Shawnee National Forest and Giant City State Park.
Feel free to wander on the 19 acres. Though we are not USDA "certified organic", we use no harmful chemicals in our food production. Please do not smoke around the growing beds and dispose of any trash in appropriate receptacles.
