FarmedHere is in a location that is tricky to find at first so please read and follow directions below:
6700 South Sayre
Bedford Park, IL
You must access Sayre by driving southbound on "Old Harlem" Road. Note that you CANNOT drive southbound on Sayre to get to farmedhere because Sayre is interrupted by impassable train tracks at 66th Street. This is what makes it tricky. You access Old Harlem from 65th Street. Whether coming from east or west, drive on 65th Street to "Old Harlem" which is just east of 'new' Harlem Avenue and also just east the railroad tracks. Old Harlem is the first stop sign on 65th Street just east of these train tracks.
Turn South onto Old Harlem, and once on Old Harlem southbound, drive south about 2 blocks to the terminus of Old Harlem where you can only turn left and then do turn left so you will be driving east.
You are now on 68th Street heading east. Continue driving for two blocks to Sayre Avenue. Take a left onto Sayre and drive 1/2 block north and you will see the farmedhere building on your left.
The parking lot is alongside the south aspect of the building so please park here and come to the front door in the middle of the east aspect of the building (just follow the sidewalk). That's it - welcome to FarmedHere!
