Welcome to Stade’s Farm and Market

Stade’s Farm & Market is located in scenic McHenry County in northeastern Illinois approximately 50 miles from Chicago. We produce fresh fruits and vegetables that we sell directly to consumers through our Farm Market.

Our farm is also popular for u-pick fruits and vegetables including strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, and pumpkins. We have a large entertainment area which includes a petting zoo, corn maze, giant slides, hay rides, and a large variety of unique attractions. Our fall festival Shades of Autumn is a harvest time extravaganza featuring 30+ farm-related attractions, pumpkin picking, great food and lots of fun.
