Produce

How we grow

A lot has changed in farming since we started in 1967. While we’ve improved and kept up with the times, we haven’t forgotten what matters most: providing you with the healthiest and freshest fruits and vegetables, from our farm to your table. How do we do it? We keep our farm sustainable and respect the earth.

That means better weed control, natural fertilizers and plant care materials, and methods that use less water, to produce healthier plants and provide you with cleaner, quality produce. By attentively tending to the plants as they mature, we are able to harvest a high-quality, bountiful crop.

The Farmstand

Looking for the best and freshest locally grown produce in town? Scheeringa Farms produce is hand-picked from our fields every morning and goes directly to our Farm Stand. We’ll even tell you exactly when it was picked and who picked it that day. Now, that’s as fresh as it gets!

At Scheeringa Farms, we’re known for our signature produce (homegrown sweet corn, tomatoes, cantaloupe and heirloom tomatoes) and we sell a harvest of other fresh produce as well.

We also work closely with federal and local nutrition assistance programs, such as the Indiana WIC, Illinois WIC, Senior Vouchers and the North Township Voucher Program. For more information please call us at 219.838.6369.

U-Pick At the Farmstand

Want to get closer to the earth? Want to see where your produce comes from? How about a great experience for the kids? Come pick some vegetables! You can pick sweet peppers, hot peppers, tomatoes, and more. During our U-pick season all vegetable selection availability is based on weather conditions and we occasionally need to close our fields. It’s best to call ahead at (219) 838-6369, to be sure we’re open and to verify what is available for picking. Pricing varies.

We take great pride in our produce and it shows! Just ask the loyal customers who visit us every week at Chicagoland Farmers Markets. With more than 30 years’ experience, many who visit us come not only for the highest quality fresh produce but because they’ve become part of the Scheeringa “family”.

We also have a variety of salad dressing, marinades, bbq sauces and pickle mixes.
