Epiphany Farms Upcoming Events

Epiphany Farms Team's all doing great and busy to prepare the winter season. Houdini (calf), Dennis (goat), Pam (dairy cow), Gary (Texas long horn bull), Guanciale (boar) and many other animals are getting hairier and ready for the cold weather as well. Our mom pig 'Pancetta' (if you had a chance to visit our farm, she is the spotted one) delivered 13 little piglets yesterday, so our family even got bigger before it gets too cold!

Before the ground gets frozen, we are planting our last seeds of the year. GARLIC!! We are having collaboration with a garlic preserver in town, who's renown as one of the biggest garlic collector. We have several endangered garlic variety and hundreds of different garlics to test and examine the taste and its use. For this reason, four people (us) are not enough for sorting and planting all these garlics, and we are looking for
volunteers who can help us to accomplish this mission. Please let us know if you can come out and help us, just for a couple of hours to several days. Send us an email ( or phone call (309-378-2403). Your help will be truly appreciated. We are planning to plant whole this week and until next Wednesday.

Our fall vegetables are all covered under season extenders - green houses, and still producing amazingly. Since the Bloomington Farmers Market finished its season and only Thanksgiving market has left (November 20th-Sat., from 10am till 2pm), we are going to have our own market stand in downtown Bloomington, in front of our restaurant place, at the corner of East & Monroe st.
