About Norton FarmFarm History - An Illinois Centennial Farm
Norton Farm has been in our family since 1846. In the early 1900's it was a dairy farm. In 1938 the farm changed from dairy to beef cattle and hogs.
The farm raised only hogs from 1974 to 1984. In 1984 Norton Farm Feeds was started and the farm manufactured and sold horse feed as well as being a full service pet & farm animal feed store until 1995 when we decided to concentrate fully on raising flowers in our greenhouses and our farm fresh produce. In 1992 we began Norton's Produce, growing and selling farm fresh vegetables and flowers to the community. In 2005 we added a "showroom" greenhouse for customers to pick and choose from a larger assortment of annuals , vegetable plants, container gardens, hanging baskets and herbs.
Norton's Produce at Norton Farm has been selling farm fresh produce and honey on our farm as well as locally grown produce for 26 years now.
