About The Fuelfed Gathering In The Grove

Our Gathering In The Grove will be held on the grounds of Mr. Rich’s private car museum. Parking is plentiful on the property, so feel free to drive your special car and have your spouse bring the kids in a daily driver. There will be adult and kids activities to help everyone enjoy the afternoon. What is a Fuelfed gathering without cars on display? A limited number of classic and modern cars can participate in our concours in the large circle drive of the club house. Those not participating in the concours can park in the designated classic & modern area.

Tickets must be purchased in advance by July 22. Please purchase your tickets now. Attendee names will be on the list at the entrance gate.

About Rich Harvest Farms

The prestigious Rich Harvest Farms is a stunning ultra-private, member-only golf course and country club with a private classic car museum located about 50 miles west of downtown Chicago. In order to enter the Rich Harvest Farms, one needs to be a country club member or on the list at the entrance.

The golf course has consistently been voted one of America’s 100 greatest golf courses by Golf Digest. Of particular interest to us at Fuelfed, the owner is a car collector who has amassed an impressive collection of classic European and American cars which are housed in the private car museum on the property where Gathering In the Grove will be held.



There will be a tour of the car museum, and you will be able to explore it on your own with a cocktail. There is also an extensive sports memorabilia collection in the club house that is available for our viewing.


We will dine inside the museum’s air-conditioned Ferrari 288GTO atrium which will be set with a delicious buffet and adult beverages, allowing members and their families flexibility about what and when they dine and drink.
We have not forgotten about members with kids. Kids activities will be under tents on the grand and lush grass area adjacent the club house. Please let us know the age of your children when you sign up.
