Deardorff Apple Orchards

It’s a great time of year to head out and get fresh apples. We hadn’t been to an apple orchard to pick our own before so we headed out to Deardorff Orchards to check it out.

It’s located just to the east of Waconia on a gravel road. Quite easy to get to, but you have to park on the side of the road.

It’s a farm and not a fancy orchard like other’s we’ve driven by. It’s friendly and has a great family feeling.

We grabbed a bag and took a wagon ride out into the apple orchards and they dropped us off. We then picked whatever apple’s looked good to us.

Most apples were $1 a pound with a few varieties a bit more. It’s a lot more enjoyable then getting them at the grocery store that’s for sure and something I’d recommend for all.

They even have a petting zoo, pumpkins, a nice store and a few other activities. It’s free to go and enjoy and apple’s and pumpkins are priced right. There is fun for the whole family!

  1. I am one of the Deardorff’s children; thank you for the great article and the picture of the apple tree. Mom and dad have decided two years ago to plant grapevines for a vineyard; Deardorff Vineyards and they plan to produce their first bottle of wine this fall 2007. Please stop by and check out the latest news or feel free to e-mail my dad, Lin Deardorff at: [email protected] with any questions or comments. Have a great summer!!
