In Focus: Big country

One of the things I love most about Kane County is that it appeals to both my city-girl side and country-girl side. 

I was raised in a western suburb but spent many weeks during the summer and winter on a working ranch outside of Rockford. It was always such a nice change of pace.

Such is the case when I'm on the job here in Kane County. It was a wonderful change of pace to visit the horses at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove during a therapeutic riding session.
