Nice country atmosphere with a family feel. We arrived around noon for lunch and had about a 15 minute wait. Friendly and polite staff greeted us behind the counter. Our waitress Tammy was very nice and was able to answer all our questions about the menu. My business associate ordered the Aunt Helen's Strawberry salad and I went with the... More

The fried biscuits were good, but the apple butter put them at Awesome! Food fresh, coffee strong, service friendly, facility clean. We've decided to try out their dinner menu tonight with friends. Only minor complaint was no alternative to pork items such as turkey bacon/sausage. That didn't stop us from having a good meal. Thanks, Candy, for not letting our... More

We were in the area staying for several days and decided to visit at lunch time! Service was slow. Half of the entrees came out and the rest of the table waited 15 minutes more for a sandwich, a childs pancake and salads. Food was good but pricey. Air conditioning was blowing on our table making it very uncomfortable and... More

It's always a good time to go Apple Picking or to try your hand at the Strawberry Fields, but my favorite is the Pumpkin Patch. 1. Get the camera 2. Pack up the kids 3. Grab a coffee 4. GO! The weather is starting to turn a little chilly and the kids are excited about Halloween. Don't forget the Harvest... More

Our family has been visiting Eckert's for over 20 years. We pick apples in the fall and peaches and blackberries in the summer. My husband and I found ourselves without any household chores on a Saturday so we headed over to Eckert's in Belleville, Il. Although it was a busy time, our wait to board the wagons that take us...

My husband and I couldn't decide where to eat. I didn't want to go very far, he wanted something we had not tried yet. So we ended up at Eckert's. We live right down the road from it, yet had never eaten the food. I was very happy with our decision to eat here. They have everything. The burgers are... More

We always make the trip for fresh produce. The blackberries and peaches are out of this world. Tastes like summer. So many other products and many are available for sampling. Well worth the trip.

Let me start off by saying that I enjoy picking fresh fruits and vegetables at Eckerts. It's a family tradition for over 40 years. But, when I come up to the cashier after being in the hot sun and she walks away to show pictures on her phone to another worker and when another person of another color comes up... More

Description
Eckert's Country Store and 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.
