We are excited to announce that our 12-Acre Corn Maze has been cut into the St. Louis Blues & Stanley Cup logos. This is an exciting time for St. Louis and we are honored to help celebrate a great team & city!

Located a mere 17 minutes away from the farmer’s market in Belleville, IL, you’ll get a taste of what it’s like to hang out at a farm for a few hours, or a whole day. We have a range of activities that appeal to children of all ages, teens and adults. The farm is open seasonally, and to avoid waiting in line, we recommend purchasing tickets ahead of your visit.
Whether it’s vacation time or you just want to get out of the house and do something fun with the kids, Eckert’s gives you plenty of ways to fill up your leisure time. Many kids have a natural fascination with farms, and now they can see a real farm in person. City and suburban kids are especially eager to see what happens on a farm such as ours. You can tell them there’s no chores. Instead, they can spend their time on the playground, ride a carousel, take the corn maze challenge or play rounds of miniature golf. Apple-picking, peach-picking and pumpkin-picking are also available during open seasons.
Fun for Schools
Teachers and school clubs can take kids to Eckert’s for a rip-roaring good time. Farms are a great way for school children to learn about planting and growing crops, picking crops and other neat stuff. Classroom visitors are always welcome at our petting farm. Younger children can even ride on push pedal tractors to emulate the big farmers. For farm-to-table lessons, take classrooms into the field for some good old-fashioned crop picking.
Fun for Organizations
Bring your church or other group to Eckert’s Fun Farm to enjoy wholesome live entertainment. Chuckle as you watch cute pigs race around a farm track. Gaze in wonder as pumpkins are shot out of a cannon. Group picnics on the farm are a blast and include buffet food and numerous activities. Take a haunted hayride at night, if you dare. We’re also happy to schedule private bonfires.
