Welcome to Deardorff Orchards

2014 Apple Season!

Regular season hours Tuesday - Sunday from 10 AM - 6 PM through November 2nd.

***Due to heavy traffic during the first few weeks of the season, all the apples in the fields have been picked.***

However, we do still some great events planned,
and a nice selection of fresh from the Orchard apples
available in the cooler in the Apple Barn.

Scroll down to see what's happening this weekend on the Farm.

Plan a beautiful day with your family at our family farm!
Nestled on 120 acres of pristine land near Lake Waconia, Carver Park Reserve and Parley Lake.
Located just 30 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis,
and 6 miles west of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum off MN Hwy 5.
Watch for the sign and turn north on Parley Lake Road.

On our farm, we grow 12 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, kitchen ware, books, local honey, jams and jellies, apple cider, pumpkins and much, much more. And of course, you can't forget all the fresh apples!

Even though we no longer have pick-your-own, we are still offering tractor pulled wagon rides through the Orchard and Vineyard every Friday through Sunday until 5 PM.
Back at the Apple Barn you will find friendly farm animals, a kid's haystack,
scenic picnic areas and many, many photo ops.

It's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon!

This Weekend on the Farm!
October 24 - 26, 2014

According to the calendar, and the lack of leaves on the trees,
we know fall is here. Guess Mother Nature did not get the memo! Lucky us!

Just remember, all good things must come to an end,
and this weather won't be around much longer,
so come on out and take advantage of the great outdoors.

Feel free to bring your dog....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.

On Friday, Filius Blue is there to tempt our tastebuds with his tantalizing
Caribbean and Latin influenced street food from Noon to 5 PM.

On Saturday and Sunday; weather permitting.
Streetzza Pizza will be on site!
The Fire Engine will be serving up delicious wood-fired pizza.

On Sunday we have two great events planned!

Back by popular demand...Gracie's Pantry will be visiting again
from 2 PM - 4 PM to demo her amazingly, delicious products.
The Spicy Bloody Mary Mix is not to be missed!
We have discovered, it makes a great chili base too!

Then you can stop by MN Boston Terrier Club and Rescue's kissing booth.
The MBTC is a nonprofit, formed in 1947, that facilitates
the rescue, fostering and adoption of these adorable canines.
All the kisses you get, and give, helps to raise funds for Bostons in need.

This weekends musical guests to round out your Orchard experience...

Saturday Double-Header
Erin and Madison will be playing from Noon - 3 PM,
and then Russell From Minnesota will take the stage from 3:30 - 6 PM.

Then on Sunday, Joanne Bolles delivers her intimate,
yet lively music to the crowd from 2 - 5 PM on the Parley Lake Winery stage.

varieties available in the Apple Barn cooler for purchase.
