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.

  • We stopped during a road trip to eat - the food was great at the restaurant, and so was the custard. The country store is similar to a gourmet grocery store + a lot more! We could have spent a ton of ...  read more »
  • Was looking for something to do and thought about Eckerts to get some pumpkins. Pulled in and saw about 400 cars parked. We found a close parking spot. The area was big enough to handle all the people...  read more »

  • We go here for good food and family fun. Eckert's is full of fresh, farm-picked food and tons of unique tasting products! They feature a restaurant which is famous for their fried chicken, cooking classes for both adults and children, pick-your-own fruits and vegetables from spring - fall, and a summer concert series from Memorial Day - Labor Day, featuring a new local band every Fri/Sat night. I highly recommend the summer concert series. Bring your lawn chair and your kids for a fun time enjoying some beer, appetizers, and custard fresh from the farm house.
  • My car over heated on highway and I came here looking for water out in the tractor entrance. I was told they could not give me water, id have to buy bottled water. I had my 3 grandkids with me, you would think all the money we all spend here you people could have helped with a bucket of watet. SHAME ON THIS BUNCH!!!!!!!!! STINGY!!!!!!!!!
  • Cute country store with a surprising amount of vegan, gluten free, and health food items. The farms offer seasonal DIY fruit picking that is fun and very affordable. They also have fair rides for kids. An excellent place to bring the family.
  • Great place to celebrate Mother's Day and the menu options provided something for everyone in our party. They were very busy but we did not wait long for our food. The waitress was very nice. She made sure our glasses were full and we didn't run out of rolls or apple butter while we waited.
  • Went here for our pastor's birthday dinner. The host conveniently looked over my wife, children and I to seat another couple who clearly walked in after us. After being seated with our group. Dinner went as planned and turned into a pleasant experience after all.
