Fresh Picked Home Grown
FPHG might be new, but we've already achieved a lot for McHenry County, Illinois agriculture and agritourism as individual farms that have been producing superior products for many years.
Now, we're working hard to make it easy to shop for fresh picked home grown fruit, vegetables and value-added food products with our distinctive FPHG logo. Look for the "Fresh Picked Home Grown" farmers at our farm markets. If you want great quality and superb taste, contact any one of the Fresh Picked Home Grown farms to get the very best in locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Why buy local?
Which is better - a blueberry picked this morning, or a berry picked a week ago, thousands of miles away?
Most of us would agree that the fresher berry is the better choice, for taste, quality, and nutrition. And that's not all. Supporting local farmers helps the local area become agriculturally self-sufficient, capable of providing food to the local area in any circumstances, regardless of weather, transportation, or other emergencies. And we believe that "closer is better" - only McHenry County foods give you all the goodness of the county's rich soil.
Food that's grown locally has benefits that go right to the heart of your health and wellness - and to the economic strength of your community. You're not just supporting local farmers, you may be supporting your own job and those of your family and friends. Everybody wins!
