The Crump family started in 1962 when Robert Crump married Joann Waldschmidt. Then to follow with the birth of their 5 children, Darlene (Stephen), Bryan, Rick, Tina (Litwiller) and Dustin and 6 grandchildren.
With Robert (Bob) now retired from Caterpillar the Crump Family Gardens and Firewood became a full time year round family affair.
We have been located at 10396 E 2100 N Rd in Carlock now for over 45 years. Bob and Joann had always planted a garden for the family's use. Seeing a way to make a little extra money and get the kids involved they set up a little roadside stand selling home grown tomatoes, corn, green beans and a other produce as it came in season. That little road side stand has now become a 21 acre garden and a new air conditioned farm stand and two full size green houses. Where you can find home grown produce at the highest quality and freshness. We also offer a variety of fruits grown at surrounding areas, such as Michigan Blueberries, Southern Illinois Strawberries, Michigan and Southern Illinois Peaches, Cantaloupe, Watermelon just to mention a few. Also we offer a wide variety of hanging baskets, bedding flowers and herbs that we start from seed right here in our greenhouses.
Crump Family Gardens is a sustainable farm and the fruits and produce that we provide from surrounding areas come directly to us from the grower (Bryan is usually the delivery person that deals directly with the growers).
Bob, Joann, and Bryan are heavily involved in the day to day operation of the farm. Darlene is at the farm full time between June and October. While Rick and Tina live out of state, on visits home help in the garden. While Dusty works a full time job year round finds time to help at the farm on the weekends. We can't forget the pride and joy of the farm the 5th grandchild Lucas living on the farm full time has become Papa's little helper and can help you in choosing any vegetable or fruit you so desire.
