You can purchase our delicious fruits & vegetables and flowers straight off the farm all year round or find us every Saturday down at the Freight House Farmers Market (May to October) in Davenport, IA.
Come visit us online anytime. Our online farm site is filled with information on growing tips, harvesting, and recipes. (Or at least it soon will be!). It changes as the seasons change so you will always find new information.
Welcome to Beacon Woods Farm & Flowers! Our small farm is located just east of the Mississippi River in northwestern Illinois near the Quad cities. "Farmer Chris" runs the operation supported by Farmer Husband Gary (and some really nice equipment!). Farmer Husband Gary does most of the heavy equipment operating, all of the maintenance, and building. We have a total of thirty six acres of rolling hills, native timber, natural waterways and ponds, and about seven acres of beautiful tillable land.
Beacon Woods Farm and Flowers holds the philosophy that delicious and nutritious foods come from sustainable & natural practices on the farm. All our fruits, vegetables & flowers are grown on the farm, are non-GMO, and are mechanically weeded (that's a nice way of saying Farmer Chris spends a lot of time bent over pulling weeds). Because we are beekeepers and because of the growing concern of pesticides in our local food supply, we use OMRI approved pesticides on our produce. We pick our produce at the peak of perfection so that you will always be delighted with the flavor, texture, sweetness & taste.
We grow and nurture naturally grown berries including blueberries, strawberries, red, yellow and black raspberries, and blackberries too. Our produce includes seasonal honey, homemade fruit syrups and jellies, various onions, rocambole garlic, potatoes, tomatoes (heirloom, slicers, paste, cherry, and grape varieties - all in an assortment of colors and flavors), peppers (green, red, hot, and habanero), yellow, purple, and green beans, cantaloupe, summer squash (four varieties) and winter squash (butternut, spaghetti, acorn, carnival, & blue Hubbard), lettuce & salad greens, kale, spinach, sweet beets, cucumbers, and extra sweet sweet corn. In the fall we offer pumpkins (from miniature ones to giant 50+ pounders), various shapes and sizes of gourds, white & yellow popcorn and decorative corn. We also grow 50+ varieties of beautiful perennial flowers and almost 150 varieties of amazing annual flowers. Come spring and summer, the farm is a site to behold!
