Stade’s Farm & Market is located in scenic McHenry County approximately 50 miles Northwest of Chicago. Stade’s grows fresh fruits and vegetables that are marketed directly to consumers through our Farm Market. Throughout the summer and into fall our farm is also popular for u-pick fruits and vegetables including strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, apples, and pumpkins.

At Stade’s, we host a number of special events. Please scroll down to read about the next event(s) or view our events calendar for more information.

Beginning Saturday, September 8, 2018, (Farmtractions Theme Park will be open weekends only.  The theme park includes a petting zoo, corn maze, giant slides, hayrides, (when pumpkins are ready to pick) 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.
