We are OPEN for the season

Our hours are Monday through Saturday 9 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 9 AM to 5 PM; weather permitting. Currently we are picking asparagus with other seasonal vegetables to follow.  Our greenhouses are loaded with annuals, perennials, vegetable plants and an assortment of unique and colorful planters.  You will find a wide selection of garden decor, distinct pots, fairy garden items along with seed potatoes and onions set available. Don’t forget the mulch!  We have premium hardwood brown along with red; available for pick up or delivery .. Call Joe at 815-739-2573 – to get on the schedule!

The Wiltse family is extremely excited about this year – being our 50th year in the produce business!  We will be celebrating all year long, please check back for updates and follow us on Facebook – we look forward to sharing this year with all our customers!!

Spring time is a great time to renew and regenerate .. what better way to do this than planting your own garden ..whether it be a small garden, a container garden or a flower garden – let us help you.  We are offering, again this year, Wiltse’s “Pot Parties” … these are specific times that are set aside that you can come out to the farm and Kate will assist you with arranging and planting your containers. For more info call Kate, 815-739-6179 or check our Facebook page for more details.

We want to be known as your LOCAL FAMILY FARM and are very humbled that YOU choose to purchase from us. Don’t forget to keep up with us on our facebook page (Wiltse’s Farm Produce) and/or our website – Our plans this fall season is to keep the farm open for a few weekends into November.
