DeGroot's Vegetable FarmFor over 70 years, the DeGroot family has been working the ground in and around Wichert, the fertile farming area located 60 miles south of Chicago, IL. This region has historically been made up of a number of family farms with Dutch ancestry engaged in vegetable and gladiolus growing. The current DeGroot family members represent the 3rd and 4th generations that have engaged in farming.
Around the 1930's and 40's, the farming operation consisted of mostly gladiolus and vegetables for retail and local markets. Since the 1970's, brothers Paul and James DeGroot, have owned and operated the family farm. Under their leadership, the farm has evolved from being a retail stand/ truck farm towards a wholesale grower for vegetable processors and distributors.
Today, DeGroot's Vegetable Farms grows Russet, Red, and White potatoes and a variety of vegetables for fresh and processing markets. In addition to our primary operation in St.Anne, IL, we also grow potatoes at our GA and NC locations. We also source product from the major potato growing regions to maintain a year-round supply.
