Growing Apples and Fun Since 1971!
The first apple trees were planted at Minnesota Harvest in the early 1970s with two goals – grow delicious, healthy fruit, and provide a unique family destination for the Twin Cities community.
Over the years, Minnesota Harvest grew into the largest pick-your-own apple orchard in the state! Its beautiful rural setting became an oasis to escape the city and experience life on the farm. In the early 2000’s, Minnesota Harvest added hard cider, farm-made pizzas and several family activities. Minnesota Harvest has also become a popular wedding and event venue.
In 2022, the Ferguson family became the new owners of Minnesota Harvest. The Fergusons are dedicated apple and pumpkin growers with several farms throughout Eastern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin in order to spread out risk to the sensitive apple crops from Mother Nature.
Like the original founders of Minnesota Harvest, the Fergusons are passionate about growing safe, healthy fruit. Their favorite time of year is when they welcome the community to their farms to meet the farmers, see where their food comes from and create lasting fall memories!
Our family hopes you’ll visit Minnesota Harvest this fall to experience life on the farm and see all that we’ve added. You can view our other farms at fergusonsorchard.com. Thank you! – The Ferguson Family
