WHERE THE MOTHER ROAD BEGINS

Since 1926

Route 66 defined a remarkable era in our nation’s history – and it lives on today in Illinois' many Route 66 roadside attractions, museums, and restaurants – it's the shining ribbon of blacktop we call 'The Mother Road'.

Downs, IL

Ken Myszka from Downs, IL came back home with a dream and uniquely inspired business plan after his culinary journey around the world. Later that year, Nanam from Seoul, South Korea, and Stu from State College, PA joined the force, and Epiphany Farms Hospitality Group began. Three people from around the world with little in common shared the desire to change the world and build a holistic hospitality movement in Central Illinois. After 10 years of dedicated effort and focus on their unique approach as farm-to-table CheFarmers and restauranteurs, they continue to push the cause forward.

With much trial and error, unexpected opportunities, community support & help from an amazingly talented team, Epiphany Farms Hospitality Group now stewards 75 acres of land, operates 4 restaurants, and a special events business with 7 venues and farm-to-table catering service.
