About Patch 22

Established in 1977, Patch 22 is a real, working family farm and has been in business for over 30 years.

Patch 22 was started by Michael and Linda Kelly in Prairie View, Illinois, on Route 22. That is where the name "Patch 22" originated. Ten years later the family moved to 22 acres in Wadsworth on Kelly Road, where it has been ever since.

The family business has been passed down to the sons, Sean and Dan Kelly, the new owners. What began with a request for a pony delivery to Spring Lake, grew into a business providing entertainment for all ages to the northern Chicago and Milwaukee area for the next generation. The very first "pony job" we did was in Spring Lake and has been done every year since. That demonstrates our commitment to gaining repeat business by doing a professional, healthy, safe and clean job. Patch 22 has done every type of event you can think of from backyard birthdays to large fairs.
