Eden's Harvest Farm
“Eden’s Harvest Farm” is an eleven-year dream come true with God’s hand in its’ fruition. Both Thomas and Janet were born in Chicago, raised in the suburbs, made it to the country, rural Blackstone, in the year 2000. This after 11 years of marriage and the blessing of a daughter, 5 years of age at the time of the move.
Now, growing in experience each year, we are still on the venture of growing vegetables using organic methods. In 2003 we started raising alpacas too.
In the past, we have sold from our farm and Dwight Main Street Market. We joined “Stewards of the Land, LLC” in 2007 because of its’ mutual goal. It has been a blessing, increasing our sales opportunities to Dave’s Market in Fairbury, County Market in Pontiac, Freshpicks in Niles, and Frontera Restaurant in Chicago. There are prospects of expanding sales more.
Our daughter has been selling her homemade zucchini bread and muffins for a few years. This year, she wants to venture in raising chickens as meat birds and layers. As a home schooling family this is exciting.
Our Family Mission
“Our goal is to glorify God in everything we do.”
We Have Grown
We grow a wide variety of vegetables including green onions, radishes, lettuces, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, herbs, tomatoes, beets, kohlrabi, summer & winter squash and more! The varieties are chosen for flavor, not extended shelf life or ability to endure rough handling by specialized picking and processing equipment.
we are not certified organic, we grow our vegetables using only natural
methods. We use no synthetically produced fertilizers or pesticides.
Ours is high quality produce that is grown locally without polluting the
environment. Our produce is picked ripe today and is on our customers’
tables tonight or tomorrow.
