There are definitely properties west of Randall Road in Elgin, South Elgin, Campton Hills that have large lots. I know of this alpaca farm: Waldron Grove Alpaca Farm that is in an area that might work. I'm pretty sure that once you get west of Randall Rd the kids go to Burlington schools, but I don't know the district boundaries. Elgin has several German companies now and they seem to be growing: Elgin Development Group: German-American Companies Meet There may be employees from your husband's company that are living in the Elgin area who would be able to give you advice. Depending on how much land you need and your budget, something like this might work: 1704 W Highland Ave Elgin IL - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #07807542 - Realtor.com® or this: 44w130 Seavy Rd Elburn IL - Home For Sale and Real Estate Listing - MLS #07889094 - Realtor.com® or this: 32w630 Army Trail Rd Wayne IL - New Home for Sale - MLS #07858395 - Realtor.com® If you want sheep as a hobby for the wool, wouldn't think you'd need too much land. There are coyotes in the rural areas in Northern IL.

Hello,
many thanks for the answers. Most important for us is the school. our son should go again to the Waldorf school and we will will try to find something.
We would want just 6 sheep, a small herd. These should also be Wool sheep.
We fly after christmas to Chicago and then will begin an inspection tour.
We are glad and are curious already very much
Silke

I am thinking Lake Barrington, ajacent to Wauconda - 5 acres, some zoned for animals. 10-15 minutes to Waldorf School and 30 minutes +/- to Elgin, depending on where in Elgin.

Much depends on budget. The school with fees will push $10K a year.
