asian pears, preserves, paw paw, herbs, tea


  • Indoor and outdoor markets


Oriana Kruszewski began growing Asian pears in her back yard more than 30 years ago because she found store-bought varieties bland and too expensive. In 1996, she bought a 40-acre plot of land in northwestern Illinois where she now grows a dozen of different pears from China, Japan, and Korea, plus hybrids developed in the United States and Europe. A few years ago she added black currant bushes and Chinese medicinal greens for culinary purposes. Oriana also cold presses green juices from her own fresh organic produce like watercress in the spring and bitter melon in summer. Oriana’s plants are grown without pesticides or herbicides. Her farm has been USDA Organic certified by Midwest Organic Services Association since 2011.

How to order

Call 847-712-9175 or email to place an order! Pick-up available in Skokie. Organic watercress available; 5 pounds for $10.
