Randy and Gayle Roberts live and work on their five-acre farm located along the Fox River in northern Illinois. They raise naturally and sustainably grown produce and herbs, and do not use synthetic chemicals on their edible products. Their sustainable practices began after they purchased their land in 2001 and started to remove generations of waste and clear masses of invasive weeds and shrubs. Today their land is rehabilitated. Randy and Gayle continue to tend their land, conserving an area for wildlife, growing food responsibly, composting, recycling, and paying attention to the effects they are having on the environment around them. They bring a wide variety of produce, herbs, edible flowers and early-season planted container arrangements to the Market. For more on this couple’s sustainability practices, visit their website.
