DIXON – State Rep. Bradley Fritts, R-Dixon, chose to highlight Kennay Farms Distilling in Rochelle for his March Local Business Highlight.

Fritts spent time touring the business and presented the owners with a certificate of appreciation for their contributions to the community.

“This month, I chose to honor Kennay Farms Distilling because of their commitment to helping our local veterans, first responders and other community organizations,” Fritts said. “Kennay Farms hosted a Hops for Heroes event, where they created a new beer and donated all proceeds to local veteran organizations.

“They also helped first responders with their Back the Blue bottles during the pandemic and continue donating items and baskets to local auctions and raffles.”

Kennay Farms was founded in 2019 by owners Doris and Rick Kennay. The Kennay family has been farming for six generations.

“I commend the Kennay family on their excellent products, hard work and continued dedication to helping our community,” Fritts said.

Kennay Farms Distilling is located at 416 Lincoln Highway in Rochelle. For information about Kennay Farms, visit
