Directions

DarnFar Ranch is located on 50 rural acres.   For many years our address was a rural route system and only recently did we receive a 911 compliant address.   Many GPS and mapping programs are not updated with our new address and even the 911 operator thought we were located in a town that is 19 miles away.   We strongly recommend that, if you are going to use a GPS, you locate Brownstown, Illinois and then use the written directions below to travel the final 3.5 miles to our destination.

Distance

GPS  Friend or Foe?
One of our clients called us a few minutes before their scheduled arrival time to let us know they were in Brownstown, IN four hours away! Another client ended up near Ann Arbor, MI when they selected the wrong destination city. And, yes there is a Brownsville, IL, but that is not where we live! Once you select Brownstown, IL check twice that is where your GPS is going to direct you!
