Selmi’s Greenhouse & Farm Market is a beautiful place for spring gardening with vegetables of every kind and flowers to make your home the best it can be. Our greenhouse is open to the public April until June. During the summer our market sells homegrown sweetcorn, green beans, melons, tomatoes and more. The Selmi Fall Pumpkin Patch also welcomes you every October to celebrate the harvest of the season in a big way at our Pumpkin Patch.
We have over 25 varieties of geraniums, vegetables of every kind and flowers to make your home the best it can be. Our greenhouse is open to the public April and May. During the summer season we hand pick all of our produce for the best quality and freshness. Our super sweet bi-colored corn is what we’re famous for, but you’ll get the same quality in our green beans, tomatoes, peppers, melons and more. You’ll find quality Michigan Peaches and Apples in August-October. We welcome you every October to celebrate the harvest of the season in a big way. A family tradition for more than 60 years, we offer family fun for all - pumpkins, carving supplies, gourds, squash, cider, apples and more. School tours highlight the weekdays and on weekends, join us for horse drawn wagon rides, corn maze, petting farm, haunted house and “Little Spook’s Playhouse”.
Matt is the 4th Generation Selmi active in the business. After leaving the farm for college and work he returned in 2008 to help run the family business. Matt and his wife Melanie have the next generation of Selmi boys, Anthony and Kellen and a daughter, Aria.
Frank and Connie Selmi
Frank has "lived" the family farm since the day he was born. The greenhouse and farm have been a part of his life. He earned his BS in Horticulture at the University of Illinois in 1976 and taught at Whiteside Area Vocational Center for 13 years. In between all that, Frank has been involved in all the activities of the greenhouse and market for over 50 years. Connie joined the operation in 1976 when she married Frank. Learning about the greenhouse was the most challenging part of joining the family. Her education at Illinois State University in Education, both Spanish and History, kept her involved in teaching both full time and substituting until the 1990's. Together, Frank and Connie have changed the face of Selmi's in many ways. The Farm Market was extended to Northland Mall in Sterling in 1979. The Fall Festival was one of the first "Ag Entertainment" farms in Illinois. Throughout the years, the Selmi's have innovated, renovated, and revitalized the farm and it's produce.
