Eckert's Country Store & Farms - Belleville

951 S. Greenmount Rd., Belleville, IL 62220

Farms & Orchards

This Eckert's location has a greenhouse, restaurant, Country Store, and fruits and vegetables to pick in season.

Open year-round, with activities all four seasons of the year, Eckert’s Belleville Farm offers seasonally available pick-your-own fruit and vegetables (crops vary seasonally, May through December, and include strawberries, blackberries, peaches, apples and pumpkins), with Christmas trees) and so much more.

Enjoy a delicious meal in our full-service restaurant with a menu filled with crowd-pleasing dishes as well as seasonal specialties (be sure to order our lip-smacking, finger-licking—oh so good! fried chicken). Shop in our “modern” Country Store and Garden Center that carry unique and specialty items as well as everyday necessities within its many departments, including bakery, fresh meats, deli, produce, wine and gifts.

The Belleville Farm also hosts year-round adult and kids cooking classes, seasonal festivals and free concerts, private cooking classes and birthday party packages, as well as our ever-popular holiday events, including Breakfast with Santa, Gingerbread Workshop and Easter Egg-Citement. During the summer, stop by our Custard Shop and refresh yourself with one of our many mouth-watering creations. In the winter, bring the family out to choose and cut-your-own Christmas tree in our evergreen forest
