In operation for nearly 60 years, Kipling Lavender on the Mound, LLC is located on the Southeast slope of “The Mound,” in Mound Township, McDonough County, IL (established November 4, 1856) just ¼ mile from the highest point in the county. The Kipling family farm was originally known as the “Kipling Hatchery” a chicken hatchery and egg production operation with multiple locations basing out of the main farm. The signature 3 story Chicken barn-boasting 59 windows, can be seen from the highway and is a local landmark constructed just after the close of WW II, from reclaimed wood sourced from the deconstruction of nearby historic Camp Ellis. Listed among the Historic barns of Illinois, it’s notable for having more than 50 windows, and at one time the barn housed some 1,500 hens, 500 per floor. Passersby frequently stop to snap photographs of the unique architectural design. After sitting idle for many years, the historic barn has been revived with the aromatic fragrance of fresh lavender drying in the rafters. The importance of the barn and family history has been incorporated into Kipling Lavender on the Mound logo design and provides an appropriate anchor for this family operation.
Just across the driveway, the building that was once a Chicken hatchery, is remodeled to become a Kipling Lavender and Medical Mary Hemp CBD retail space as well as a lavender essential oil distillation facility to produce Kipling’s own lavender essential oil which is used in each of their handmade lavender products.
Changing the face of the farm, Kipling Lavender on the Mound, LLC has become a reality through the innovative effort and collaboration of the 3 Kipling brothers, and their families. Growing up on the farm, learning from patriarch Ronny Jo Kipling, that hard work is rewarded and community is family, Kipling Lavender take pride in offering only the highest quality hand made Lavender products, as well as Medical Mary Brand Hemp derived CBD products.
An hour drive from Peoria, Quincy, Burlington, Quad Cities, and 3-4 hours from Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Des Moines, and Kansas City-make this a perfect day trip destination. Numerous local Hotels in Macomb to accommodate your visit.
