A major source of contention is a 60-plus-foot-wide driveway Tortorici and Nelson share with neighbor Steve Sextonson, his wife and other easement holders.
The unincorporated Caledonia Township couple want to use their homegrown vegetables and other ingredients to create sauces and other recipes in their FDA-approved kitchen to sell items online, in small boutique retail outlets and at their private dinners at 722 Kelly Road to be attended by no more than 30 guests.
a result of concerns building in recent weeks, the Belvidere-Boone County Planning staff added restrictions into the special use which would restrict the couple to hosting two parties a week, between the hours of 7 and 11 p.m. and with low lighting, if any, for a guest parking area. There are a total of 15 restrictions, including an operating season for the onsite dinners.

At Kelley Road Farms, we are looking to produce a quality, higher-end, gourmet food product line for distribution in retail outlets and restaurants wanting to carry or use a locally-grown and produced product. The key signature ingredients to our products will be grown ourselves. We also hope to partner with other growers to provide specific ingredients, ie. herbs, root vegetables, etc. We will do this all in a bio-dynamic way without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Every attempt will be made to ensure that our practices are as sustainable as possible.
