Goebbert’s Farm & Garden Center in South Barrington is rich in history.  The family comes from a long line of farmers who immigrated here from Germany in the 1850’s.  The farm’s founder, George Goebbert, farmed 29 acres of land in Arlington Heights and started selling vegetables roadside in the 1940’s.

For years, George’s son, Jim, farmed and sold produce alongside his Dad.  In 1972, Jim Goebbert bought the 40-acre farm in South Barrington and he moved to the home there with his wife, Esther, and their three children.  Jim and Esther have since retired and their sons, Lee and Lloyd, along with their wives, run the farm.

Goebbert’s Fall Festival is one of the hottest places to be in the Barrington area during the weeks leading up to Halloween!  Picking out pumpkins and letting our kids enjoy the many fun activities at the fest is one of our family’s favorite fall traditions.

Fall Festival

Enjoy our 50 plus animal display up close including feeding a giraffe at eye level, pig racing, pony rides, camel rides, corn stalk maze, wagon ride and our jumping pillow – and these are just some of the activities. New this year is a giant Corn Box for kids to play in.  (I hear adults like it, too) that’s part of Animal Land and the Little Farmers Play Yard.

Make it a day with lunch at Goebbert’s Red Barn Cafe & Bakery. They have fall produce, pumpkins, caramel apples, fresh apple cider donuts and Michigan Apples in the Fall Harvest market.
