Spring/Summer Group Tours

Plan your group outing at Abbey Farms! Learn about the fascinating history of Marmion Abbey, the establishment of its renowned Academy, its development as Chicagoland’s oldest continuously operating Christmas tree farm and, now, the development of its memorial apple orchard.

Depending on the season, you may enjoy a tour of the Abbey Church and a concert (featuring its amazing organ and a talented monk musician) or a walking tour of the sculptures on the Abbey grounds.

Then enjoy a delicious dining experience in our Emporium Cafe, with seasonal items that might include our fresh-picked produce. Shop in our 6,000-square-foot farm store, with hundreds of specialty items only available at Abbey Farms.

Finally, you can come back for more fun – such as our classes, musical entertainment, and arts & crafts experiences. Abbey Farms is the place to gather – for days you will never forget!
