Support your community.

I believe one of the reasons our retail and restaurant businesses are successful is because we have earned a reputation for shopping local, giving back and supporting the community we love. I believe in getting what you give. My husband and I partnered with the village, chamber of commerce and local charities for community events. We do this because we enjoy giving back, honestly, it’s good for the soul.

We love town, this is why I named my business Kara Farmhouse, it gives credit to the 100+ year old farmhouse we live in today (our logo) and makes me pause to think about a simpler time. The charm of this town with it’s quaint shops and fun downtown activities is what drew us here. You’ll find kids still playing in mud puddles, tire swings and sandboxes. Love living here with 1890s charm.

Local community events:


Fallfest 2019 “starfest”

Every year labor day weekend the streets of downtown Frankfort are taken over by our annual Fall Festival Event. It’s the largest event in town every year and a top festival in Illinois to attend. Make sure you stop by and find me I’ll be working the fest all weekend. We can still use your help to volunteer, contact the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce at 815-469-3356.

Also we are looking for “bluebie” volunteers these are the teenage helpers (anyone looking for community service hours this is a great way to get those hours needed in!).
