Illinois Pork Farms

The below 2 Illinois Pork farms and ranches sell direct to consumers. Any heritage breeds, free-range or specialty services are listed next to the farm. Why buy local? Freshness, care, variety and the ability to deal directly with the person raising your livestock or poultry. This list isn't necessarily meant to be a complete listing, but more of a listing of consumer-oriented farms that focus on quality. If you are looking for a great place to buy fresh meat then stop here first. Also, please shoot me your experiences (positive or negative) or help me add any that should be listed here.
