Stade’s Farm & Market is located in scenic McHenry County in northeastern Illinois approximately 50 miles from Chicago. We produce 2,200 acres of crops that range from traditional corn and soybeans to specialty crops including many fruits and vegetables commonly grown in northern Illinois. Through our own farm market, we sell our fresh fruits and vegetables directly to consumers in our local area. Our goal is to provide our customers with the finest quality produce possible.
Our farm is also popular for u-pick fruits and vegetables. The u-pick season begins with strawberries in mid-June, continues with raspberries in July, tomatoes and other summer vegetables in August, and pumpkins in September and October.
Stade’s Farm & Market is well known for farm tourism. We have a large entertainment area which includes a petting zoo, corn maze, giant slides, hay rides, and a large variety of unique attractions. Our fall festival Shades of Autumn is a harvest time extravaganza featuring 25+ farm-related attractions, pumpkin picking, special events, great food and lots of fun.
