Welcome to Jefferies Orchard.

Our market at 1016 Jefferies Road is open daily:  Sunday 10 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday 9 am to 6 pm.  Please feel free to call us during business hours at 217/487-7582 if you have questions or to check crop availability.  We accept all major debit/credit cards.


We have our fresh, picked-daily green and purple asparagus and rhubarb, the beautiful dark red variety, currently in season.  We are planning our last day for asparagus and rhubarb to be Sunday, June 4.


U-pick strawberries:  Weather permitting, on Monday, May 29th beginning at 9 a.m., and ending no later than 6 p.m., or when no ripe berries left, whichever is earlier.  Any additional picking dates are dependent upon crop availability and weather. 


We provide picking containers and price is $2 per pound.  The strawberry field is approximately 1/4 mile west of our market with an approximate GPS address of 1453 Jefferies Road, Springfield.  You may proceed to the field or stop by our market for directions.  Follow us on Facebook for the latest details including inclement weather updates.  (No restroom facilities at the field, but you may use the restrooms at our store less than 1/2 mile away.  Please plan accordingly, and we apologize for any inconvenience.)


While we are disappointed in this year's strawberry crop, our u-pick blueberry crop is looking exceptionally good.  See Calendar below.

More hanging baskets fresh from the greenhouse!  Three varieties of Proven Winners including the popular Dragon Wing Begonias -- continuous blooms!  Lots of pretty colors:  purple, yellow, pink, red, etc.


We proudly sell Country Home Creations and Halladay's Harvest Barn mixes, such as customer favorite Savory Mushroom Burger Blend, Farmhouse Corn Chowder, Confetti Cheeseball mix and many, many others.  Compliment your roasted asparagus or add crunch to your rhubarb crisp with flavorful Voss Pecans from Carlyle, Illinois.  Field-green type lettuce from our greenhouse is almost here.



Saturday, June 3 & Sunday, June 4:  Customer Appreciation Weekend to mark the end of rhubarb and asparagus season.  Samples of dip, soup and beer bread, and strawberry lemonade.  Stop by and see us!


Upcoming crop outlook:  U-pick tart (also known as pie cherries or sour cherries) cherries early to mid-June.


U-pick blueberries are on schedule for late-June to early-July.  The blueberries look GREAT!!!  Plan to come pick some so you can stock your freezer with the blue super food!


Sweet corn late July.  Great peach season expected early-to-mid August.
