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!
The last few VERY busy weekends have depleted the apples in the field to the point
where we can no longer offer apple picking this weekend....
However, we will still be offering tractor pulled wagon rides through the Orchard
and Vineyard on Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 - 4:00 PM.
And...back at the Apple Barn you will find friendly farm animals,
a kid's haystack, scenic picnic areas and many, many photo ops.
