Chesterton Feed & Garden Center


A casual stroll in the sunny parkway. A walk along a shady garden path. A quiet pause by a flowing fountain.   This is Chesterton Feed & Garden Center. A destination point for both novice gardeners and experienced plant lovers, you’ll find a peaceful spot of beauty and tranquility. Be inspired by the lush colors, textures, and shapes of nature. It’s brimming with the vivid hues of birds, blossoms, and butterflies.

Watch playful birds splash in the gently rippling stream. Enjoy the sound of rushing water as it cascades over a rocky waterfall into the beautiful lily pond. Be amazed at the brilliant colors of exotic garden Koi as they gracefully dance through the crystal clear water.

Take home the magic of Chesterton Feed & Garden Center. Create your own painters palette right in your own backyard. Enjoy the gentle dances of butterflies as they flutter through your gardens. Smell the plump ripe “Blue Jewels” as you harvest your fresh crop of blueberries. Relish the taste of the season’s first vine ripe tomato as the juice drips off your chin. Immerse yourself in a Monet-like setting beside your water garden’s edge where the sound of a waterfall hypnotizes the spirit and playful garden Koi splash amongst the exquisite water lily blooms. And when you finally kick back at the end of the day with an ice cold glass of lemonade, revel in the allure of your very own Garden of Eden.

Good to Go


The essence of fine gourmet cooking and dining - - At Good To Go Deli we invite you to our Olive Oil and Vinegar Shop for a tasting and to see the difference that the right olive oils and vinegars can make! We take special pride in our ultra premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils, produced in the small-batch method by artisans from around the world. All of our aged balsamic vinegars come from Modena, Italy. They are then stored in stainless steel “fustis” to maintain the ultimate freshness and to allow you a taste of our amazing varieties before we bottle.

On those days when you crave a great meal but don’t have the time or energy to cook, or when you need to entertain on short notice - you can pick up take-home versions of our popular Lucrezia Café veal meatballs, stuffed banana peppers, polenta torte, 3-meat lasagna and 4-cheese stuffed chicken breast – just reheat and enjoy!

We also encourage you to try our Deli items such as our signature homemade Tuscan chicken salad, macaroni salad and a large selection of delicious sandwiches. We make our box lunches with premium Boar’s Head meats and fresh Labriola bread for a great treat to take back to work, on road trips, a day at the beach or just outside the deli at our picnic tables.
