Christ Orchard

4321 North Texas Road
Elmwood, IL 61529


Our Rich Heritage

The orchard has been in production for over 35 years. The first trees were planted by the Midland Coal Company in the early 1970s. Later, when the orchard began producing, Elmwood school's FFA organization was asked to tend and operate the land. As a high school student, Kurt Christ was integrally involved in the care of the orchard. Upon Kurt's graduation, he first rented and ultimately purchased the orchard in the mid-1980s.

Family Owned and Operated

Kurt and his wife, Connie, have been the co-owners of Christ Orchard for nearly 30 years. As their children, Beth, Lena, Molly, Karl, and Amy, grew up, the small orchard grew as well. Now the 2nd generation joins the business, and we will continue to work together to provide quality fruit and farm fresh products to our customers. We look forward to serving you in the future.
