Food and Wine names Eckert’s among the best farms in the country


BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Eckert’s is a name that is well known in the St. Louis area. The family farms are a staple for visits with the family during the spring, summer, and fall. Now, they are getting some national recognition.

Food and Wine Magazine has named them among the top farms in the country as one of the best farms in Illinois.

“Way down in Belleville, old-fashioned fun at Eckert’s Country Store and Farms draws the masses from across the river in St. Louis; come for pick-your-own peaches, peach pies, apples, apple pie, and family-style chicken dinners that will put you under the table.”
