Eckert's Orchards

Create Family Memories at
Eckert’s Country Store and Farms

Eckert’s Farms, family-owned and operated since 1837 by seven generations of Eckerts, is the largest pick-your-own orchard operation in the United States.

Starting as a simple roadside stand in 1910, the Eckert family now owns and operates farming, entertainment and retail entities in Belleville, Grafton and Millstadt, IL. We have grown from simple fruit orchards into family entertainment centers that feature special children’s activities, annual events, festivals and the Eckert’s Country Store and Restaurant.

Here at Eckert’s our mission is "To Create Family Memories" for you and your family. We’ve been entertaining families on our farms for many years. We invite you and your family to visit Eckert’s and share some of our country. It’s truly an experience you just can’t get in the city!

Relax, browse our site and stay awhile. Better yet, pack up the kids and plan to spend a day at one of our farms. We offer something for all ages.
