Pleasant Valley Orchard Season Highlights

Fall Apple Orchard Season

The orchard is currently closed.  The 2020 Fall Apple Orchard Season begins Labor Day Weekend; September 5, 6 & 7th.

We are currently working on a COVID19 plan for our fall season. Regular activities like those below may not be available. We will make adjustments to our season depending on guidelines from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health.


For all the tastes and colors of fall, there is no better place than an apple orchard! And Pleasant Valley Orchard offers that and more! Fresh, tree-ripened apples to delight your taste buds, hand-dipped caramel apples full of gooey goodness and beautiful pumpkins are a fall-lovers delight! We offer a low-key family atmosphere, with just the right elements.

You will find your favorite Minnesota Grown apples, Pleasant Valley Apple Pie, caramel apples, apple turnovers, apple brats, fresh apple cider, a HUGE assortment of pumpkins, fall and Christmas decor, gifts and more in the old barn gift shop. Bakery products are offered daily.

We invite you to enjoy our scenic location during regular business hours.


Weekdays is a relaxing time to enjoy the orchard.  Activities available every day include nature trail, farm animals, haypile, corn box, picnic area, our famous caramel apples, scones and turnovers, cookies and of course, apples and shopping!

Our apples are pre-picked but on weekends, you have the option to pick them yourself, in season, while supplies last.


On the weekends you’ll find hayrides, pick your own apples, special events and you’ll find us making and serving donuts and brats in our food trailer.

Picnic Area Guidelines

We love it that our customers enjoy the beautiful view from behind our barns, we do too! However, to ensure that our picnic area is available to all of our customers, we ask groups to limit their use of picnic tables to 30 minutes on weekends.
