Happy Halloween! We are picking apples and pumpkins at our farms in Belleville and Millstadt, Illinois.

Pick-your-own apple prices at all our farms are $1.79/pound, and pick-your-own pumpkin prices are 49 cents/pound. We will offer pick-your-own apples through Nov. 2 at our farms in Belleville and Millstadt. Today is the last day of the 2014 season for pick-your-pumpkins at both farms, but we will have already picked pumpkins at the Belleville Country Store while supplies last.

At the Belleville Farm, we are picking FUJI and GRANNY SMITH apples as well as pumpkins from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. A limited supply of already picked FUJI, Granny Smith, Gold Rush, Braeburn, Cameo, Jonathan, Sun Crisp, Golden Delicious, and Red Delicious apples are available for purchase in the Belleville Country Store for $1.79/pound. Already picked pumpkins are available for purchase in the store for 49 cents/pound.

At the Millstadt Farm we are picking FUJI apples and pumpkins from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. Entertainment at the Millstadt Farm is closed today, so there is no admission on those days. We will reopen full entertainment on Saturday, Nov. 1, with carnival rides, haunted hayrides, the corn maze, jumping pillow, pig races, pumpkin cannon show, and more. Admission includes those activities and is $12/person for anyone 2 and older. On Sunday, Nov. 2., entertainment will be closed for the 2014 season but we will offer pick-your-own apples from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Grafton Farm is CLOSED for the 2014 season. Thank you to all our guests who visited our Grafton Farm this year. We appreciate your business!
