Creaking Tree Farm is located in Alvin, IL along the North Fork of the Vermilion River.  We are new Illinois Farmers with 63 acres of woods and farmland.  We grow our all natural products in a chemical free and sustainable environment on two acres of our land.  Our main crop is Hardy German Hardneck Garlic and Scapes.  Beginning in June our fresh Garlic Scapes are available for approximately 3 weeks & if we have any left you can purchase them frozen after that.  We harvest our garlic in July, let it cure for a 2-4 weeks and sell it by the ¼, ½ and full pound until it is gone.  We also have apples, pears, peaches, cherry and plum trees, grapes and assorted berries in season.  We are working hard to restore our farm as it was in the past and have a forest management plan to keep it that way.  Over 6 acres of Pollinators have been planted in the last few years to increase our native bees, birds and wildlife. Our U Pick is currently open by appointment only and we deliver locally.  We are members of Market Maker, Local Harvest and Buy Fresh Buy Local, Illinois Where Fresh Is and the Vermilion County FSA.  Please give us a call to reserve your garlic or see what is available at that time.
