Mick Klüg Farm focuses on providing sustainably farmed, hand-harvested, quality fresh fruit and vegetables to local and Chicago-based farmers markets, restaurants, breweries and fresh produce retailers.
Mick Klug grew up on a 40-acre farm his parents established in the 1930s. He took ownership in 1974, and expanded the land to over 120 acres.
For the past several years, Mick has worked closely with his daughter, Abby Schilling, and son-in-law, Mark, successfully sharing management and ownership responsibilities to ensure the land, operations and customer relationships stay within the family.
Now Abby, Mark, Bae and Ben own and operate both Mick Klug Farm and Schilling Family Farms together.
Their family is committed to sustainable agriculture and promoting locally grown produce. Mick Klug Farm is MAEAP Environmentally verified for their cropping and farmstead systems.
