Lakeview Farms is a family owned farm that serves only the St. Louis metro area. None of our berries or gourds are shipped out of the St. Louis area. We hire only local teenagers, college students, and occasionally local adults that have an interest in working outside. We do not employ migrant farm workers(who in my opinion are very dependable and hard working people); this means that 100% of our berry production is sold U-Pick -- we are not able to sell "prepicked" berries. Lakeview Farms is operated under Sustainable Farming practices that try to minimize the negative impact of our operations on the environment.
