Stade’s Farm and Market is a family owned and operated farm which offers a sought after u-pick experience, along with a market, and a must-see Shades of Autumn festival, all in nearby McHenry, Illinois.


Early fall is when raspberries ripen and become most sweet and delicious. Make a visit to pick your own, enjoying the crisp fall air with friends and family, as you plan something yummy to make with your fresh fruit. Raspberries will continue to ripen until the first frost, so you have lots of time left before the fruit is no longer available.

Come late September into October, visit Stade’s for their autumn pumpkin festival which provides seasonal family fun. Enjoy a wagon ride back to the fields where the pumpkins are grown and pick out the perfect squash to adorn your front porch. Visit the petting zoo, enjoy watching the exciting “pumpkin cannon” as it blasts pumpkins across the property, and don’t leave hungry! There’s lots of fall favorites to choose from inside the market.

Visit their website for more details, and enjoy a fall day on the farm!
