Central Ill. provides sustainable food
FAIRBURY (AP) — When Trent and Justin Kilgus began raising goats for meat seven years ago, they were teens experimenting on their father's farm. Now the brothers from rural Fairbury supply food to top chefs in the big city.
"It was kind of a word-of-mouth when we started," said Justin Kilgus, 22, who now raises more than 400 goats with his brother at Kilgus Farmstead, a family-run business that also supplies bottled dairy milk to the Chicago market.
The duo makes a weekly trip north to deliver goat meat to restaurants including The Girl and the Goat in the city's West Loop neighborhood and Frontera Grill, owned by celebrity chef Rick Bayless.
