Videnovich Farms

Videnovich Farms is a second-generation American farm but our farming heritage goes back centuries to the southeastern European region. Our relatives still farm in eastern Serbia near the Bulgarian and Romanian borders and our crops (and recipes) reflect this heritage. We specialize in peppers, eggplants, and lamb and have also been growing seasonal diversified crops for decades.

During the growing season we deliver vegetables to Chicago on a twice-weekly schedule.

Yarn (and knitwear) from our mixed-breed, natural-colored flock is available at additional fall and winter craft fairs in Chicago. Interesting in learning how to knit or spin? Classes are available.

Wholesale and custom vegetable-growing orders are available for chefs, restaurants, and retailers.

It's obvious from Vera's CSA boxes that she is devoted to giving her customers the best of her harvest. The variety of heirlooms tomatoes, the delicious fingerling potatoes, the scrumptiously different vines beans - can I get a 'DELICIOUS'?!?!

This is the third CSA I've been involved with, and I couldn't be happier. Vera's prices are the most reasonable in the Chicago area, and she offers a week-by-week payment option, which is just what my family needs, since we travel a lot during the summer.... [more]

I am new to the whole veggie delievery thing. It is the best choice I ever made. Every week I pick up some fresh and interesting new veggies. I have not been a big vegetable eater, but now I am not only an good veggie eater but a good cook.... [more]
