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.
