Pure Prairie Farm was founded by Bill Scheffler & Izabella Kowalski in 2010 to grow high quality fruits and vegetable for the local market. We are passionate about agriculture, good land stewardship and food. We believe that everyone should have access to safe, nutrient dense, locally grown food.
We wish to (RE) connect people to freshness and flavorful. Something familiar but milder, juicier, sweeter, crunchier …a unique color or different texture. We work hard to grow food that is delicious, healthy and nourishing. We strive to achieve this by applying advanced soil and plant fertility, use minerals and advanced biological products.
Our vegetable selections expand yearly, often with several unusual and lessen known heirloom varieties tucked amongst customer favorites. We also have been looking forward to expanding to fruit; not just more melons and cantaloupe but strawberries, apples, pears, raspberries and pretty much anything that our midwest climate can handle. People love their sweets and we want to be able to provide it to them.
We sell our produce mostly direct to consumer at farmers markets, through our community supported agriculture shares (csa), -and new this year- our farmstand in St. Charles. We also work with some restaurants, caterers, canners and other food professionals in the Fox Valley Area and surrounding communities. We are continuing to grow more and build our network and expose more people to locally grown, sustainably raised food.
Check us out sometime and see for yourself the superb freshness of real food with real home grown flavor that can deliciously awaken your palate and enliven your plate.
