Green Earth Harvest, a program of The Conservation Foundation, is a certified organic farm dedicated to providing local, organic vegetables through environmentally sustainable methods. For almost 20 years, we have farmed on protected land in the middle of suburbia at the McDonald Farm in south Naperville providing local, organic produce for our community!
As a farmshare subscriber at Green Earth Harvest, no matter where you pickup your vegetables, you have the ability to select the veggies you prefer from the wide variety of vegetables we harvest each week- no set boxes or food waste. You'll not only be delighted by our delicious, high-quality and nutritious produce, but you'll also have the opportunity to be a part of our community; getting out into the fields for bonus UPick days (peas, tomatoes, beans and strawberries), pizza nights, and guest farms who bring their local meat, eggs and fruit to Green Earth Harvest!
Our Spring Season spans the 4 weeks from mid-May to mid-June, our Main Season harvest runs for 20 weeks from mid-June to the end of October and the Late Fall Season runs for the four weeks in November.
