This Is So A-Peeling!

Here’s an opportunity as sweet as pie! Did you know that you could leave a legacy with Abbey Farms when you sponsor an apple tree? Planting begins this spring in our new apple orchard and we have trees, shelters, arbors and entire groves available for naming rights. Make an impact for a generation to come when you choose to sponsor a tree, two trees or more with our orchard right off Hart Road.

There’s even more to enjoy! Additionally, as a sponsor you’ll be entitled to early picking rights before the public is admitted and free admission to the orchard for the first five years for a family of six. We’re planning for harvesting by 2021 with special events planned for the opening that you’ll want to be a part of. So c’mon and make some precious memories for your family for the seasons to come when you choose to grow with us – your neighborhood farm!

To All the Couples Who Said “I Do” - A Farewell to Weddings at the Farm

Many blushing brides and exuberant grooms have danced across the floors of our emporium over the years, celebrating the beginning of their lives together. Wedding parties and honored guests enjoyed sweet and savory treats while taking in the beautiful sunsets over the Fox Valley. Many happy memories were made among the twinkling lights and warm reclaimed wood surrounding the party in our Emporium. On numerous weekend days our staff worked tirelessly, but happily, to create each and every bride and groom’s special vision for their wedding day.

Being a part of so many newly-married couple’s first celebration together with their friends and family has truly been an honor and pleasure. Countless couples have expressed their gratitude to us for our role in making their wedding day truly unique and memorable. Our mission has been to make every wedding reception personalized to each couple. During this process we inevitably developed relationships with the happy couples, and as one bride put it, “I was sad for the end of the day, partly because I had such a great time planning all the details with you — I felt so supported and special!”

We at Abbey Farms loved getting to know our various couples and feel a connection to each and every one of them. As we conclude our days of hosting weddings we are reaching out to our newlyweds to share photos of their wonderful memories from here at Abbey Farms. With your permission we would love to feature you online and in social media — some happy couples will win passes to our annual Pumpkin Daze! Please share your memories at Again, it is with sincere gratitude that we thank you for spending your special day with us at Abbey Farms and we will miss having these celebrations of love and commitment moving forward.
