A Zestar apple is so similar to a Honeycrisp that you’ll think you’re eating a Honeycrisp! Crisp, juicy, and with a distinct crunch! Right now, only Zestar is ready for picking. Apple picking occurs in our Oswego orchard during normal business hours Mon-Fri 9am-6pm, Sat & Sun 9am-5pm. We don’t charge an apple-picking fee. Purchase an apple bag in the farmstand first and then head to the orchard to fill it. Please pick only what will fit in the bag. (more…)
Zestar chose to be the first apple variety to ripen this year! If you love Honeycrisp, you’ll LOVE Zestar. People tend to compare it to Honeycrisp. You can pick your own Zestar apples in our Oswego orchard or buy pre-picked.
Thinking about fall yet? All varieties, sizes, and stages of pumpkin growth are out in the patch. This pumpkin was on the edge of the patch making it easy to photograph. It is good-sized now. Just wait another month and this will be an absolute behemoth (like many others)!
Cassandra, an employee who has worked for us for many years, LOVES to cook and create her own recipes. She’s really good at it, too! Here is a recipe she created which uses some of the products we sell at our farmstands (in bold text below). We’ve tried it and think you’re going to love it as much as we do! (more…)

Frank started the business in 1991 with a cart at the end of our driveway on the Naperville farm. He had just returned from serving in the Peace Corps in Lesotho (a country in southern Africa) teaching people how to farm. This was his first actual farmstand building (1993). He originally sold only vegetables in the summer and pumpkins in the fall. Our current Naperville farmstand was built to replace this one which we outgrew. My, how times have changed!
Need hot or sweet peppers, zucchini, or yellow squash? We’ve got ’em! All farmstands are loaded with fresh vegetables. Come in and see what you’re fixing for supper tonight!
