Camels of Avon
Avon, IL’s Bill Maloney owns Neff Company, which sells John Deere products in the village. He originally brought camels to town as a promotion for John Deere Day, after seeing some on a farm during a business trip to Missouri. Bill fell in love with those camels, and soon after decided to buy some of his own. Now you can see his Bactrian (two humps) and Dromedary (one hump) Camels of Avon as you drive by his farm on route 41 on the north edge of town.
