The Community Orchard is owned and operated by first generation farmers, Denny and Emily Stucky. They are thrilled to begin their second year of ownership and are excited about new updates and attractions that will be available this season.
This year will feature updates to the shopping area, online ticketing for the outdoor attractions and festivals, and a corn maze that is bigger and better than ever before! Don't worry - the same warm, cozy smells will be greeting you from the kitchen and apple pies will be ready to be taken home! Denny and Emily, along with their three children, Charlie (13), Jack (11) and Erin (7), are excited to see you all on August 1!
The orchard, which lies along the beautiful Des Moines River Valley, grows 5,000 trees and includes 15 varieties of fresh from the tree picked apples. Our apples are all pre-picked and available for sale in our market. You will find one of a kind home décor and gifts in our Apple Orchard Home. The Market Place is filled with great food finds and many of our very own products including our delicious bakery items made fresh in our Apple Orchard Bakery.
Our lunches are a tasty treat! The Apple Orchard Café is open from August 1st till Christmas each season and serves soup, sandwiches, and salads along with our famous dessert options. Our Back 40 Playground was added in 2012 and now is a special venue that can keep your family busy for much of the day. The Back 40 Playground is open from 10am to 6pm daily and closes for the season October 31st.
