UNIQUE IN SUBURBIA | Sonny Acres Farms

by Brianna Bartemeyer


It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But, what makes it so? After all, there’s much to celebrate throughout the year - birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and various holidays (to name a few). Yet, it’s different … magical … joyful.

There’s a deeper sense of gratitude, generosity and kindness that fills the air. And just as Eddie Pola and George Wyle expressed in their 1963 classic Christmas hit, it’s a season associated with cherished traditions and beloved activities with those we love. If you are looking for a new tradition this holiday season, check out Sonny Acres Farm.

Located in West Chicago, this family-owned farm began in 1883 as a small-produce farm. For the last century, they’ve built a destination that’s more than just a farm - a location the whole family can enjoy. Its all-new Christmas lights show (Big & Bright Trail of Lights Festival) features dazzling lights, delicious treats and a photo-op with the iconic ‘Leg Lamp’ (a must-see holiday attraction for Christmas Story fans!). Its Christmas Market invites guests to fun finds, unique gifts, festive music and tasty treats. Explore its freshly-cut Christmas tree lot; the varieties include: Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Douglas Fir, White Pine, Scotch Pine, Black Hills Spruce and Blue Spruce. And we can’t forget about everyone’s favorite North Pole visitor - Santa.

We hope you can be part of this unique holiday experience. Cheers to making unforgettable memories with family and friends ... ‘Tis the Season! It’s sure to be … ‘the hap-happiest season of all.’
