Our 6,500 tree orchard is located one mile from the intersection of US Highway 10 and County Road 11, Audubon, MN. The property was bought by my parents in 1966 and primarily farmed. In 2001, I planted 50 trees on the west side of the creek, part of the Buffulo River Watershed. I added 50 trees for a couple of years and then significant numbers after that.  The orchard on the west side of the creek is named Masut, which means fertile, dark soil in native American languages . The soils are immediately underlain by alluvial clays, modified drift, sand and gravel. With this remarkably strong subsoil and equally remarkable deep and rich upper soil, there is good reason for the fertility which has characterized this region. We specialize in U of MN varieties like Zestar, Sweetango, HoneyCrisp and First Kiss.

Tree-ripened, pesticide-free and hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. Open weekends beginning August 26, 2023. Pre-picked available all season and U-Pick on weekends. 

Picnic sites are available.
