Honey DEW Acres Farm
Welcome to our HDA Farm Site
just outside Normal,Illinois
Honey DEW Acres is a 5 acre sustainable farm located north-west of Normal Illinois.
Visitors to the Honey DEW Acres farm experience the unfiltered reality of the settled agriculture in all its meanings. Their experience is firsthand as they see the day-to-day affairs of farm life. Spring, our busy growing season, is when garden crops are sown and tended one after another. Alpacas are sheared in April and hay is harvested in June and stored away for winter. Goats and Alpacas are out of the barn and grazing on green pastures. Our days are varied and pleasant, active yet relaxed, reflecting the ever changing nature of farm life.
