Bill Royer welcomes you to his 56-acre farm in Washington, about
three hours from downtown Chicago, where he and his family raise
Suffolk sheep. Bill is looking forward to the birth of nearly 25
lambs between late January and March. If you visit, expect to pet
and hold, and possibly bottle-feed, a baby lamb. Call Bill at (309)
472-3231 or email [email protected]
to set up a tour.
Prairie Park offers picnic areas and food to buy on site. Stop
for lunch and see bison, elk and deer.
Caterpillar Visitor Center in Peoria also is a worthwhile stop,
full of interesting, family-friendly exhibits.
