About Lambs Farm
In 1961, Bob Terese and Corinne Owen opened a small pet shop in downtown Chicago. Part of their mission: to employ workers with developmental disabilities so they can lead productive and fulfilling lives. Lambs Farm has since relocated and expanded into a 70-acre campus, which has a variety of residential and vocational programs that continue to help those in need. Nearly 250 individuals take part in the services, including group homes and individual apartments, access to employment opportunities and a number of recreational services, such as camping and hobby clubs. In addition to the expansive Garden & Pet Center, the campus also has a farmyard, a bakery, and assorted shops that sell goods handcrafted by Lambs Farm residents.
This venue has the potential to be very nice. The day we went, half of the attractions were closed. My grandsons were disappointed that they couldn't ride the train. I love vision for this place. My wish is that a Service Organization would adopt them and help generate revenue to boost their worthy cause. In spite of the closed attractions, we had a fun time seeing & feeding the animals.
