Where is the Illinois River Road?
Traversing both east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa, 150 miles south to Havana, the Illinois River Road has spurs to the communities of Princeton and Canton. The Illinois River Road corridor has over 100 natural and historic sites and numerous unique communities located throughout its 10-county region.

The Scenic Byway is conveniently located between Chicago and St. Louis, but just far enough to get away from it all. So get off the beaten path and see what the Illinois River Road has in store for you!

Orchard Hill Farm
16859 E CR 9, Lewistown, IL 61542



Listing Photo Orchard Hill Farm has been producing fine crops of fruits and vegetables since the 1930s. Opting for new and more peaceful careers, Ken and Sharon Thompson purchased the farm in 1987. The 125-acre farm contains 50 acres of row crops, 40 acres of woodland, and about 30 acres of orchards. In addition to fresh produce sales, they also operate a small bakery, selling Sharon's famous fruit pies, dumplings, and breads. Orchard hours are 9am to 5pm from mid-July through mid-November.
