Description

This is a RARE Income Opportunity!  The property, known as Wind Ridge Herb Farm, has been providing organic herbs and herbal products for over 23 years to their client base covering much of Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.  The farm is known to its many visitors as a unique and extraordinary setting for weddings and events, and for comfortable stays in the guesthouse thru Airbnb or VRBO.  The main contributors to their success are their dedication to organic farming practices, their commitment to providing only the highest quality products without compromise, and going out of their way to optimize their guest’s experience, all on a picturesque Victorian estate surrounded by mature trees, perennial gardens with no neighbors within site!  WRF was recognized for “Excellence in Agri-Tourism” by the State of Illinois and has volumes of rave reviews on the vacation rental sites.   Existing revenue streams include seasonal wholesale and retail plant production and sales, year round wholesale fresh herb production and sales, Airbnb and event income, and sales from consumer package goods.   There are two houses on the property:  A magnificent 1889 historical Victorian with over 4,000 square feet is currently used as the Owner’s residence, and a second separate and private 2 story guesthouse operates as a popular vacation rental with a 4 night minimum stay due to its popularity.  The vacation rental popularity presents significant revenue potential should the main house be offered as a vacation rental also.  Zoned AG, a special use permit makes this all possible with very few restrictions. With 5 hoop houses,  3 barns, numerous outbuildings, a 60 x 90 indoor riding arena, 3 pastures, 2 paddocks, loafing shed, chicken coops, a hog house and lots of critters, the potential for income has barely been tapped.  The Boone County location is perfect for tourists, offering easy day trips to and from Chicago, Milwaukee, Lake Geneva, and Galena, as well as being in close proximity to local wineries, Pumpkin Patches, and Orchards.  The sky is the limit here and the owners would love to find someone who would like to build on the existing revenue streams as well as tap into the immense potential that yet exists.  To assure a smooth transition they have offered to guide and coach the new owner if desired.   Their goal is to sell everything intact to include both furnished houses, outbuildings, greenhouses, equipment, livestock and existing inventory.  With a fabulous following for over two decades, this is essentially a turn-key business with the potential for substantial growth in a beautiful, peaceful and private setting.
