We are the Roth family and we started Madoli Farms back in 2014 out of the passion for growing healthy, sustainable produce for our own family. With so few options of local produce we felt it necessary to share our passion with the community. We came up with the name of our farm by combining our to daughters names, Olivia and Madi. Mad-O-Lee
We moved to 5215 Walkup Rd in Crystal Lake (Formally Walkup Heritage Farm and Gardens) after 3 years of having a farm stand on Country Club Rd in Woodstock. We opened a farm store at this historic location to sell our fruit, vegetables and eggs. We are looking to expand our selection of items available to you as we continue to grow. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you this summer.
Our location is across the street from Veterans Acres Park which boasts a variety of outdoor athletic fields and recreational areas including restrooms, two picnic shelters, a playground, two lighted tennis courts, a basketball court, Mary Peacock softball field used by the Girls Softball Association, Frank Repp baseball field used by Babe Ruth Baseball League, sled hills, Acorn Alley splash pad, walking paths, boardwalk and fishing pier.
Our home on the farm was built in 1856 out of cobblestones that were hauled in Oxcarts, from the shores of Lake Michigan over 40 miles away. The farm itself dates from 1835 which is one of the oldest in the county and we are thrilled to have an opportunity to continue the farming tradition just a ½ mile from downtown Crystal Lake.
Strawberries will be available starting in July and depending on weather will continue through October or the first freeze. Please check our Facebook page for current information.
Closed for season. See you in 2021
Feel free to message us for eggs, honey and jam throughout the year.
