Van Laar's Fruit Farm

It is truly a delight and privilege to serve various restaurants in the Rockford, IL area with our locally grown produce. We started supplying restaurants in 2011 when Chef and Owner Paul Sletten of Abreo & Social found us at the Edgebrook Farmers' Market. We have similar customers who enjoy tasting local produce which is harvested when the natural sugars are at their peak. Since then, we have expanded and now provide fresh produce to a number of Rockford, IL restaurants where our customers enjoy eating.

Located in the fertile land of Northern Illinois, Van Laar's Fruit Farm grows various fruits and other produce.  Our goal is to strive to produce high quality produce that everyone can enjoy.  Today, more than ever before people are lacking food that is healthy and tastes great. Fresh produce begins in May and continues into November. Throughout the winter, apples and other products continue to be sold at winter markets and from the farm.


What's Growing


One of the highlights of our business is Market Time.  This is the time when we meet so many wonderful people who truly appreciate fresh produce.  Come early, leave late and enjoy the festive atmosphere of the bustling market place. The earlier you arrive the better selection you will have to chose from and the earlier you can begin to taste quality produce.  We strive to bring our very best, and have left produce in the field because it did not pass the family's taste test.  Come and see us at the market!
