About Kilgus Farmstead

Kilgus Farmstead is a family-owned and operated farm located just minutes outside of Fairbury, Illinois. We specialize in Jersey milk and beef, Boer goats, Berkshire hogs, and growing seasonal crops accustom to Central Illinois.

The dairy and grain farm was established in the 1950s by Duane and Arlene Kilgus. Today, Paul, Matt, Justin, and Trent Kilgus own and operate the Kilgus Farmstead with the help of their families. They work the same fields and lush pastures of rural Livingston County that their family has maintained for generations.

Kilgus Farmstead dairy products are distributed throughout Northern and Central Illinois and can also be purchased onsite at the Kilgus Farmstead Country Store. The Country Store carries a variety of dairy products, meats, and local specialties.
