PICK YOUR OWN
FROM JULY 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.
**Strawberries are the only crop available to PYO on Saturdays ONLY for now. This may change in the future. All other crops are available for PYO during our regular open hours, pending growing season. If you are interested in PYO strawberries, please visit our strawberry page for more details.**
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.
Know Before You Arrive
Wear light-colored, cool, loose fitting, cotton clothes.
Wear closed-toe shoes, like tennis shoes or boots to walk in our fields.
We recommend bringing a pair of gardening gloves because some vegetables have prickly vines.
Wear and bring with you sunscreen, a hat or visor and sunglasses.
Bring plenty of bottled water to drink.
Bring a small cooler with ice pack if it is a very hot day or if you have more than a 30 minute drive home.
If needed, we will provide containers and a wagon to haul your harvest from the field.
We will place your berries or vegetables in plastic bags after you are finished picking.
You may bring your own containers. Ice cream buckets are ideal for smaller items.
A picnic area and restroom access is available.
Once you arrive, please check in with someone at our farm for picking instructions.
