PICK YOUR OWN

FROM JUNE TO LATE SEPTEMBER

A family experience we have made a tradition. We welcome you to experience our farm first-hand with our Pick Your Own experience. It is as simple and fun as the name implies. From the most varieties of mums grown on one location in Illinois to our vertical hydroponic strawberries. Hand-select what you bring home while making memories and enjoying a one-of-a-kind AG-venture.

There are two ways to pick your own (PYO) at our farm:

  •  Appointment PYO Experiences

Why PYO

Enjoy a trip to the country, the fresh air and the quiet! Children can learn firsthand how plants grow and what fresh produce tastes like! You not only get to pick out your very own produce or plants, but you can save money by picking your own.
