About Us
Several years ago Rick and Mike Dittmar decided to start selling sweet corn and other produce at the local farmers market. With the help of Peg and Jonna, we now sell delicious sweetcorn in the summer and pumpkins, apples and popcorn in the fall. In 2014, we planted an orchard that has 4 different kinds of apples. Two years later we planted 700 more! We also farm about 100 acres of "regular farming" with field corn, soy beans and alfalfa. In the fall of 2014 we opened for U-pick pumpkins and had over 1300 visitors. We proudly sell, apples, pumpkins, raspberries, sweet corn and now POPCORN! The farm is located in scenic Jo Daviess County in Northwest Illinois around 10 miles from Galena. The farm has been in our family since 1854.
We use traditional farm practices but with our apples we follow Integrated Pest Management (IPM). No insecticides or fungicides are used on our popcorn.
