Thirty years ago, Jim and Judy purchased the 71-acre farm that has become Pleasant Valley Orchard. We are a family owned orchard with the first tree plantings in 1990. Our goal is to provide quality strawberries, apples, pumpkins and fresh bakery products in a family friendly environment.
We don’t have a lot of bells and whistles here, but hope you find a place that is friendly, inviting and worthy of becoming a tradition.
We utilize integrated pest management techniques, in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and the University of Minnesota, to manage the orchard. This means we spend a lot of time monitoring and trapping pests in order to minimize our use of pesticides. We do this to protect the environment and to ensure our apples are absolutely free of any pesticide residues when we pick them.
