What's New for 2014

All spring and summer we've been hard at work on our little piece of heaven in the northland.  We can't wait for you and your family to walk through our expanded cornmaze,  then scribe a special message into your pumpkin, finally get that perfect fall family photo at one (or more) of our many photo stations.

Grab an apple and enjoy the sights and sounds of fall in Minnesota, we can't wait to see you and your family this year.

Pumpkin Scribing – Mark your calendar for mid August, call and stop by to scribe your own pumpkin with a personal message.

Our climate is unique with a short growing season, cool nights and warm days that bring out the best sugars and crisp texture you love.

The University of Minnesota apple varietes grow best here, because they were created here.
