Eckert’s Country Store & Farms is the largest family-owned and operated pick-your-own orchard in the United States. Established as a farm and simple roadside stand, the Eckert family now owns and operates farming, entertainment and retail entities in Belleville, Grafton and Millstadt in southwestern Illinois. For a century, Eckert’s has served the bi-state region as a local source for agricultural products including pick-your-own strawberries, blackberries, peaches, apples, pumpkins and Christmas trees during the growing season. Today, Eckert’s offers an experience that extends beyond pick-your-own produce to include the Eckert’s Country Store & Garden Center, and the newly expanded Restaurant. Eckert’s offers specialty foods, meats, wine and cheese selections, as well as a range of classes, including cooking and wine classes for adults, and special children’s activities for families to enjoy throughout the year.

  • I had a great time! The place is very family-friendly. They have all kinds of stuff to do, so be prepared to spend a long part of the day there. Their Nursery is gorgeous and the prices are fair. They also have a cute souvenir store and marketing with a bakery inside and an area for cooking classes. They sell everything, like deli, wine, beer, coffee, soap, snacks, jelly, bread, baked meals, and of course produce. They have samples available around the store. They also have a restaurant and an ice cream store. We tried the vanilla ice cream cone, it was delicious. We collected peaches and blueberries, they were very good and sweet. The sunflower maze is fantastic, very beautiful! I took so many cool pictures! Make sure to bring sunscreen, they have plenty of ice-cold water available pretty much everywhere. Only seen one bathroom, the only reason I gave four stars instead of five.
  • Was great. Felt good to pick fresh peaches and blackberries. Was bit of a task for me . Disability. But the staff are very accommodating to those who are disabled. Made it worth the task. And there were also sunflowers and vegetables you can pick too. Apples will be ready end August mid September. The store , frozen Custard shop and restaurant is awesome. You can't go wrong going out there for a day trip.
