Our small, family-owned farm includes locations in urban Chicago and the nearby countryside. We use sustainable, progressive, organic farming practices that take advantage of the seasons.

Pleasant Farms is committed to growing the community through farming. We view our activities—among them farming, farmers markets, informational courses, vermi-composting, and farm tours—as fun and special opportunities to bring together people from diverse backgrounds and to share knowledge, with delicious results.

Pleasant Farms produce is found in the food and retail products sold at Pleasant House Bakery, including the traditional and modern savory pies and pasties, Royal Pies. We also sell produce and plants at Pleasant House Bakery and area farmers markets, and provide at-home gardening and landscape consultation, including design and construction. Pleasant Farms is proud to be among the growers at The Plant, an innovative vertical farm on Chicago’s South Side.
