Polson's Natural Foods
My grandfather dreamt of getting back to "working in the soil" and raising organic crops. So in 1952, my father bought a small farm in Antioch, Illinois. From 1952-1963, organic grains, chickens, eggs, and fruits from the orchard were sold in the farm store. What fun Randy, my brother, and I had working beside grandfather and our father.
In 1963, we out grew the farm store and moved to Antioch's Main Street. Then in the late '70s, we opened two more stores, making three. My brother Randy managed the Niles store and his wife Stephanie the one in Zion. I took over the reins in 1979, and Jeri my dedicated wife, partnered with me until she decided to retire. In 1990, when my brother and his wife moved to Crivitz, Wisconsin, we downsized to one store again: Polson's Natural Foods Store, 960 Main Street, Antioch, IL.
