After many years as a Educators in Tidewater Virginia, we decided to move to La Moille Illnois to live on and care for the Pre-civil war family farm.  Hedgegrove Farm is a  funtioning farm where corn and Soy beans are still raised by an area farm family.  This historic home stead included a farmhouse, smokehouse, out house, corn-crib, tool shed, granery and "half in hill" barn.  After relocating to the farm in June of 2008, we found ourselves wanting to bring livestock back to what was once a thriving cattle farm.  After some consideration we decided to purchace a started flock of Icelandic Sheep.  After two winter's as shepherds our flock has grown from 7 to 21 beautiful Sheep.
