Meyer Produce is a small family run farm located in Villa Grove, Illinois just 30 miles south of Champaign-Urbana
Meyer Produce is owned and operated by Ben & Molly Oberg, a young husband and wife team who are passionate about rural life. Ben & Molly love growing fruits and veggies that are memorable or unique and they enjoy connecting with you, their customer, at local farmers markets in central Illinois.
Meyer Produce is a well established fruit and veggie farm. Our rural 25 acre farm has been growing and selling produce in the Champaign-Urbana area for over 30 years. We're known for seasonal, high quality, delicious produce.
We believe in sustainable agriculture and incorporating it into our farming practices as much as we can. We utilize rotational planting, cover crops, mulching and other processes that holistically support the environment. A few on-farm poly tunnels extend our growing season. These are heated sustainably using wood boilers and cast off wood from local arborists. In 2019, we received state and federal incentives along with an agricultural grant to purchase a solar system that now supplies the entire farm with renewable, 'clean' electricity.
Ben & Molly's sole source of livable income comes from what the farm produces. Because they rely solely on the farm for income and strive to produce the highest quality of produce that they can, the utilization of conventional farming practices does come in to help them achieve these goals, but only when completely necessary.
