Muffler Man and Bessie the Cow

Field review by the editors.

Libertyville, Illinois

Lamb's Farm is a children's attraction run by a non-profit organization for people with developmental disabilities. Visible from the interstate, there's a train, a mini-golf course, various petting zoo areas, gift shop, restaurant and snack shops. Visitors can learn about farming while contributing to support the organization's programs.

Muffler Man with an ax.

The attraction overall is fairly low-key, and popular with families in the region. Of particular interest to road trippers: A 15-ft. tall fiberglass Paul Bunyan Muffler Man statue holds a menacing ax. Next to him -- in fact making him seem shorter than the average woodsman -- is Bessie the Cow, a Big Bovine fiberglass statue. They are both in excellent condition.

There's also a large fiberglass milk bottle nearby, making a pleasing farmland trio.
