Welcome to Deardorff Orchards
Plan a beautiful day with your family at our family farm!
There is no admission charge or fee to park, and we are pet friendly.
Dogs are always welcome because we love dogs on the Farm.
All we ask is that they are friendly, on a leash and
not brought into the Apple Barn or Tasting Room.
Oh yeah...we love owners who clean up after them too.
Our Orchards and Vineyards are nestled on 125 acres of pristine land
near Lake Waconia, Carver Park Reserve and Parley Lake.
Just 30 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis,
and 6 miles west of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
The Hwy 5 road construction has been extended by a few weeks,
but don't let those ORANGE MnDOT cones keep
you from your favorite fresh off the tree Minnesota apples!
Easy directions are a just click away!
Regular season hours are Tuesday - Sunday
10 AM - 6 PM
Still Closed Mondays
On our farm, we grow 10 varieties of apples, on over 3,000 trees, and 5 varieties
of Minnesota Cold Climate wine grapes, on 3,100 individual vines.
Some of the apples, and all of the grapes are used in winemaking at Parley Lake Winery.
Our rustic barn was built in 1888. Inside the barn, you will find the Parley Lake Winery
tasting room, as well as hand-made crafts, colorful mums, kitchenware, books,
local honey, jams and jellies, apple cider, pumpkins and much, much more.
And of course, you can't forget all the fresh Minnesota apples!
Apple Picking This Weekend....
You can either walk to pick-your-own Haralson in the Lindley Field closest to the barn...
Or just hop on the tractor to the Bonnie Field to pick
a bag of Haralson, Honeycrisp, Regent, Sweet 16 or Honey Gold.
The Honeycrisp are very popular, and supplies are limited to what is on the trees.
When they are gone, they are gone.
We do offer both Honeycrisp and SweeTango® for purchase in the cooler.
Be sure to check back often for apple picking availability,
as well as what is available in the cooler in the Apple Barn.
We offer continuous tractor pulled wagon rides through the Orchard
and Vineyard every Saturday and Sunday until 5 PM.
We also have kid's red wagons available,
if you wish to venture out on your own.
Back at the Apple Barn you will find friendly farm animals,
a kid's haystack, scenic picnic areas and many, many photo ops.
