Earth First Farms is a certified organic apple orchard, small fruit and vegetable farm only 100 miles from Chicago.
Beautifully situated on 49 acres of rolling land in Southwest Michigan, the farm includes approximately 3,500 apple trees, strawberries, ground fruit and an array of vegetables that varies annually. In addition to our Rent A Tree program and Organic Apple CSA, we sell apples, cider, pies, and vegetables at several farmers markets and independent retailers in Chicago. We also host a certified organic U-Pick every fall.
Since 2012, we also own and operate the historic Heartland Cafe in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. Heartland is a 40 year old restaurant that caters to all eating styles. We feature unique vegetarian and vegan food, but we also feature our famous bison burger, bison chili and plenty of other meat offerings. Earth First Farms produce is used extensively in the Heartland kitchen, and our produce is available to buy at the Heartland grocery store. Come on by to visit and ask if Tom is around!
We are a small family farm, committed to bringing you the freshest, healthiest, most delicious apples that Southwest Michigan can produce – without harmful side effects on the environment or your health.
