We are a unique farm in that we sit on the edge of a beautiful wetland full of a variety of birds and other wildlife that provide a beautiful chorus of sounds from sunrise to sunset.  Only five minutes from the farm are great places to eat, grab coffee, and enjoy micro-brew beer. Located less than an hour outside of Chicago, we are an easy drive from I-90 (exit on Randall Rd. or Route 47) or Route 20.

Heartland Voices consists of professional and professionally trained singers from the greater Northern Illinois area who are committed to excellence in choral music performance.

Formed in 1999, this critically acclaimed ensemble came together to expand their love of music, to perform challenging and diverse literature, to offer their talents as guest artists for symphonies and other organizations, and to establish a strong community service component with an emphasis on educational outreach programming. They have been regularly featured as guest artists for the Illinois Chamber Symphony and the DuPage Opera Theatre.

Heartland Voices has performed at weddings, masses, nursing homes, local schools, and has joined with the Community Crisis Center, Boys and Girls Clubs, Mother Goose, the Resident Police of Elgin, Sherman Health Systems and the Larkin Center for community service projects. In October 2001, Heartland Voices was honored to join an elite number of ensembles when they performed for the Illinois Chapter of the American Choral Director's association, and were honored with an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall in April 2002.

Now in their seventeenth season, Heartland Voices continues to expand their repertoire and their love of music, while striving to set the highest standard for performance and professionalism.

The Highlands of Elgin

The original nine holes flow over beautiful rolling terrain, creating a diverse collection of holes.

The new nine holes reclaim an old stone quarry, and take maximum advantage of the unique and dramatic landforms that were left behind, including a twelve acre quarry lake. Four holes hug the top of the bluff thirty to forty feet above the water providing golfers with incredible views and numerous shot options on each hole.

The collection of eighteen holes now provides golfers with an adventure through a variety of unique golf holes in a beautiful setting.

The prairie style clubhouse features an expanded golf shop, locker rooms, event rooms with expansive ceilings and a full scale food and beverage operations. Enjoy dining at the Grumpy Goat Tavern and experience stunning golf course views. The facility also features a lighted practice facility offering bent grass tees, 30 hitting stations, short game area and a 9,000 sq. ft putting green.
