Pleasant Valley Orchard Season Highlights

2022 Fall Apple Orchard Season

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. Please note that we offer pick-your-own apples on Saturday and Sundays only.

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, gourmet foods, fall, farmhouse and Christmas decor and gift items.

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, picnic area, caramel apples, scones and turnovers, cookies and of course, apples and shopping! Please note that we offer pick-your-own apples on weekends only.
