Riverfront Berry Farm

Riverfront Berry Farm originated in 1994 after Coleen and Bob Blain retired as educators in suburban Chicago and returned to the farm where Bob grew up. The farm was originally purchased by Bob's grandfather in 1906. They are the third generation of the family to operate the farm. The farm borders the Iroquois River which results in the name Riverfront Berry Farm. Fruits grown on the farm inculde strawberries, black and red raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries , apples, cherries, and peaches. Vegetables crops include: asparagus, garlic, sweet corn and 28 other vegetables. Freshness and high quality produce are parament to Coleen and Bob. Produce is picked fresh daily throughout the growing season. Items which benefit from cooling are placed in coolers within 20 minutes of being picked. These items are sold directly from the coolers. The goal is that a given product be picked and sold in the same day to insure the freshness and quality our valued customers deserve.
