The Largest Family-Owned Pick-Your-Own Orchard Is Right Here In Illinois

In the western part of Illinois and close to St. Louis is Eckert’s Farms which claims to have the largest family-owned-and-operated pick-your-own orchard in the country. Eckert’s actually has three farms in Southeastern Illinois in Belleville, Grafton, and Millstadt. The Belleville location is, by far, the largest with a restaurant and a store open all year long and a seasonal pick-your-own orchard, while the other locations are open seasonally.
