Experience picking your own apples or even better yet, we’ll pick them for you! Apples keep the best when kept in our 35 degrees Apple House where they are stored after picking. This helps keep the apples crisp, juicy and delicious! We have a variety of apples to satisfy any and all taste buds. Many of our apples have been developed at the University of Minnesota Horticultural Research Center.

SweeTango: Katie’s favorite! Parentage is the Honeycrisp and Zestar. Sweet and Tangy perfection! Available early Sept.
Honeycrisp: A great mid-season apple of which our Reed can’t get enough! Juicy with a mildly aromatic flavor and a great storage life to boot! Uses: Excellent for eating, jazzing up a salad, or making a delicious dessert!
Haralson: Rich’s favorite! A late-season crisp juicy and tart apple. Good for eating, cooking, and baking pies!
Keepsake: Terri’s favorite! Fun Fact – One of the parents of the Honeycrisp apple. Wonderful sweet/crisp apple, smaller in size and picked late season with a great shelf life!
Sweet 16: Paige and Matt’s favorite! Very sweet and succulent – some people compare it to candy!
Connell Red/Fireside: Connell Red is a naturally occurring mutation of the fireside apple …pretty much the same apple. Big, sweet and firm with a complex flavor! Beautiful big apples that are wonderful baked with LuceLine Honey, raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. Uncle Jerry loves Connell Reds!
