Anyone want to buy an acclaimed goat farm? Champaign’s Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery is up for sale. Here’s a link to the listing for the farm, barns, goats, creamery, retail store, and farmhouse if you want to peek at the 92(!) photos.

Here’s what owner Leslie Cooperband said to Smile Politely about the sale.

We are selling the farm, the land, the house, and the dairy/creamery business after nearly 20 years in business. We are excited and hopeful to find a buyer who will build on the legacy that we’ve built here…We are still milking goats and making cheese and hosting guests on the weekends. We very much want the community to continue to support our small business.

The current owners are hoping to sell by the end of year, so they can retire after decades of farming and cheesemaking. Don’t worry though, the farm and creamery will remain open as usual while listed for sale.
