Muller’s Lane Farm really is a labor of love. The farm makes money but not enough to pay the bills. David Hass is a firefighter, Paul Muller is the handyman, blacksmith and furniture maker. You can also find him putting his blacksmithing skills to work at the nearby John Deere Historic Site in Dixon, Illinois. If you’d like to find out more about Muller’s Lane including farm tours, go to their web site at www.mullerslanefarm.com

Muller’s Lane Farm is located near the small town of Rock Falls, Illinois. Not far away are the so-called “Quad Cities” of Moline/East Moline and Rock Island in Illinois, and Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa. These cities and the surrounding area are becoming popular stops for people interested in agri-tourism. Attractions include the impressive John Deere Pavilion and numerous pumpkin patches, corn mazes and farmers’ markets in the fall. For more information and travel tips, go to www.visitquadcities.com.
