General Farm Description: Hungry World Farm is a nonprofit educational farm located in Tiskilwa, IL. We are a young and growing organization desiring to work with others toward a healthier world. "Seeking the well-being of all, Hungry World Farm inspires and educates people about healthy fields, food, and bodies while caring for the Earth." While maintaining a focus on learning, we work to build healthy, productive farm enterprises. Our main areas of production currently include a no-till market garden, 2 acres of blueberries, and pastured animals. The 175 acre farm includes 100 acres of forest, a native hill prairie, a creek, and exciting elevation change. We think it is beautiful! Our wood-fired oven is ready for pizza nights this year, too!
