Handpicked Patches at Mill Creek Farm in Quincy
Make your way to Mill Creek Farm in Quincy for a fresh-from-the-garden produce pairing from its strawberry and asparagus patches.
Mike, Theresa, John and Wilson Roegge begin to harvest their asparagus in mid-April. They snap off the spears by hand to ensure they’re 100 percent edible with no woody root ends. Visitors to the farm can buy asparagus by the bunch or try some of the farm’s homemade pickled asparagus, asparagus poppers or fresh asparagus guacamole.
The family-owned operation’s other crop, strawberries, arrives on the scene in late May. Visitors can pick their own strawberries or purchase them pre-picked.
The berries don’t always keep up with demand, so call Mill Creek Farm at (217) 222-8430 for daily availability or visit millcreekfarmquincy.com.
