We love Eckerts Farm. We go there quite often for concerts in the country store or on the patio. Great family concerts kids can play while mom and dad kick back with a drink. Restaurant food is great and like home cooking. Country Store products are best around from meat to baked good fruits they have it all. Everyone that... More

Good family fun! Located just outside of Belleville, IL on Highway 15, it's a must see in the fall months. The food and deli are amazing. Crafts to buy, garden store to explore, educational opportunities for the young ones make this place a great day trip for young and old alike.

As they say, "Shop, Dine, Experience". Eckert's Belleville Farm is located about 20 miles SE of downtown St. Louis on Illinois HWY 15. Explore the main store, garden center, restaurant and custard shop. However, the most fun happens in the fields! Hop aboard a tractor-pulled wagon and drive through beautiful orchards and berry fields. The hundreds of acres also offer... More

Eckert's is conveniently placed considering there isn't much else to compete with it for miles around. It has a grocery store with an outstanding bakery, deli, fruit/vegetable department, craft, & gardening store which joins it, along with a teaching area, just to name some of the things it sells. A row of buildings that houses a custard shop, a country... More

This Orchard is a perfect place to bring the family for a great time. They have seasonal fruit and vegetables the whole family can enjoy picking together. They have restaurant and deli, great selection of frozen custard. For those who enjoys wine tasting and learning new recipes, they also offer cooking classes. This place is wonderful and a family friendly.

We frequently visit the store and deli to pick up quick dinners and other quality food items. The store has a great selection and we love visiting the frozen custard stand in the summer as well. Eckert's is very family friendly, so prepare for some very busy weekends!

If there is a way to make money Eckert's has thought of it. They have nice things, but there is too much emphasis on the profit end of things.

Everything Eckert's touches turns to gold! They have one of the best "commercial" orchards around. They offer much more than just pick your own. Check out the country store where you can get a quick sample of their amazing wine selections! They have a full service deli with some take-away options, as well. There is also a full service garden... More

The restaurant has home cooked specialties of items like meat loaf and roast beef. The country store is more economical for desserts where you can buy a whole dessert for the price of just a couple of pieces in the restaurant. Forego the individual servings of frozen custard which are skimpy and expensive. Go to the freezer section inside the... More

How can you go wrong! It's like getting a little slice of the country, right on the edge of the burbs. I love the nick-nacks their buyer gets for each season, and enjoy the homespun atmosphere.
