About

Lifeisgood

We are a family owned small farm on 20 acres of land in Granite City Illinois, established on October 27, 2007.  We sell eggs, board horses, offer riding lessons, and rent ponies for children’s birthday parties.

We also rescue animals through our not for profit 501C3 certified large hoof animal rescue foundation.  Fundraisers, donations, and volunteers to help support the rescues we take in are accepted, accredited, and appreciated.

life is better on a farm

In spring, summer, and fall, we open on most weekends with free admission.  Entry is free and pony rides are just five dollars ($5.00) per child. If you’re on a tight budget but are seeking outdoor recreational activities to do with your family, you’ve found the right place and we’re happy to entertain you.  Picnic tables are available on site.

Our 2019 Schedule is as follows, weather permitting.

Join us for our annual Fall Festival!

You can book our mobile petting farm to come to your event or rent venue space at the farm.  We are great for assisting with farm animal themed birthday parties, family reunions, rustic weddings, and other outdoor recreational special events! Call (618) 610-2455 or (618) 792-3038 to make your reservations.

Our address is 1108 Old Rock Road, Granite City, IL 62040. We are located in close proximity to the 7 mile Chouteau Island Levee Trail. 

“Several not-for-profit organizations and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources have worked together to create a recreational area and natural wildlife habitat.”

The Island offers trails for biking, hiking and equestrian use, as well as hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities.”  If you own a horse and choose to board with us ($175.00 monthly, feed included,) then you’ll be able to trot along the scenic routes without having to load up the horse trailer or worry about parking.
