Asteria Farm is a suburban farmstead providing Lake County, IL with fresh, local produce using only organically-approved growing methods. In 2014, I purchased a foreclosed home on a double lot intending only to start a small garden and grow enough to feed myself and some family... then got a little carried away. By the next summer, I had successfully turned nearly every bit of grass into usable growing space - just about 1/4 acre altogether. Since then, I've fed dozens of families through a farmers market and weekly vegetable shares.
