Over 70 years and still growing......
Family owned and operated since 1946, Scharf Farm provides customers with seasonal homegrown produce straight from our family's farm to your family's table. In October of 1945, William and Marguerite D. (Wehmeier) Scharf married, and that following spring marked Scharf Farm's first growing season with grain farming (wheat, corn, soybeans) as well as homegrown strawberries and asparagus sold at the farm's roadside stand 4 miles north of Millstadt, Illinois. By the late 1960's, production of grain, strawberries, and asparagus increased, along with a few other fruits and vegetables.
In the mid-1970's, Allen Scharf, William and Marguerite's third and youngest child, a school teacher and farmer, and his bride Nancy (Erwin) Scharf, expanded the family farming business and in 1979 added our second location at Soulard Market in the City of St. Louis, Missouri. In 2019, Allen and Nancy's kids, the third generation of Scharf Farm, expanded to include locations at the Belleville Old Town Farmers Market in downtown Belleville, Illinois and the O'Fallon Station Vine Street Market.
You can also find our produce at select specialty markets, on the menu at select restaurants, and at CSA groups in the STL area.
