Brook Farm produces vegetable transplants, bedding plants and potted flowers and a wide variety of vegetables plus pumpkins, ornamental corn, gourds, popcorn kernels and flavored popped popcorn products. We are presently selling at farmers markets in Woodstock, Illinois and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin as well as from our farm store at the farm. Our focus is on providing the freshest and most flavorful vegetables directly to customers living in our local area. Brook Farm has been a farmer owned and operated specialty crop farm for the past 40 years. Although we are not an organic farming operation, we believe sustainable agriculture is a goal that we must strive to achieve. Brook Farm is making every effort not to degrade our farmland or water resources. Urban area tree leaves are applied to the soil each year to enhance soil organic matter and productivity. Cover crops are being grown in rotation with our vegetables. The farm has a seven thousand watt photovoltaic renewable energy system operating to meet a significant share of our electric energy requirements. More renewable energy capacity is planned.
Brook Farm grows a wide range of high quality annual flowers, seasonal fresh vegetables & watermelon, pumpkins, gourds, popcorn kernels, and flavored popcorn products. We offer ultra fresh produce at reasonable prices. We sell weekly at the Woodstock, Illinois Farmers Market on Tuesdays & Saturdays and the Lake Geneva Farmers Market on Thursdays May-October. Our Farm Store is open beginning mid-summer. Come and see us. We'd love to tell you about the farm and the joy of growing vegetables!

I have been a customer of Brook farm for a few years and have signed up this year with their CSA. Their produce is always delicious, the people who work there are so friendly, and I love supporting my local growers!
