Saturdays and Sundays in September (plus Labor Day!) at Eckert's - Belleville Farm are all about celebrating AppleFest! Enjoy wagon rides, live entertainment, kids activities, festival food, pony rides, farm animals petting zoo and of course, pick your own apples. There is a fee for some activities. AppleFest is also held at the Millstadt and Grafton Farm locations beginning Saturday, September 8th. See website for more information.
Visiting Eckert's in Belleville is a fun way to spend a day for the whole family! During the growing season, kids love to ride the wagons out into the fields to pick fruits such as apples, peaches or strawberries. Eckert's has pick-your-own pumpkins and Christmas trees, too! Seasonal activities include hayrides, craft making, wreath making, summer concert series, breakfast with Santa or the Easter Bunny, photo contests and more! There are three Illinois locations, the Belleville Farm, the Millstadt Farm and the Grafton Farm. Eckert's has the great distinction as being the largest pick-your-own orchard operation in the United States.
Please check the website listed on each event to get the most up-to-date information.
