Trogg's Hollow Weekly Update

  • 6/25/15 Newsletter “A whole summer ahead to cross off the calendar, day by day. Like the goddess Siva in the travel books, he saw his hands jump everywhere, pluck sour apples, peaches, and midnight plums. He would be clothed in trees and bushes and rivers. He would freeze, gladly, in the hoarfrosted icehouse door. He would bake, happily, with ten thousand chickens, in Grandma’s kitchen.”from Dandelion Wine, by Ray BradburyWhen winter is here it seems interminable, but then summer comes.

Trogg's Hollow is a family-owned and run farm doing bio-intensive urban-style farming located in Poplar Grove and Elgin, Illinois.

We offer our produce for sale primarily through our subscription based CSA program, but also at local farmers markets and our on-farm stand.  We also sell to local restaurants and breweries.

We provide people from the Chicago and Rockford area as well as the suburbs in between with naturally grown and raised, quality food, and the opportunity to participate in a welcoming farm environment. 

Our veggies are safe and chemical free.  We grow naturally, the way humans have for thousands of years and the way our parents, grandparents and great grandparents taught us. We do this so that our children, and everyone, can walk into our fields, pick a veggie, and eat it there without worrying what may be on or in it.  

We are excited to offer a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, some of which you won’t see at your local grocery store. Our growing season goes from early Spring to late Autumn, so it is a fun challenge to provide a nice selection of produce.
