Pleasant Valley Orchard grows quality Minnesota apple varieties. Our apples are sold only at the orchard. You can’t find apples any fresher! Weekdays all apples are pre-picked and on weekends, you can pick-your-own (depending on what’s in season) or purchase them in the store. But our caramel apples don’t grow on trees!
You can be sure no matter what time of the season you stop by, you will be sure to find an apple to suit your taste. We have apples perfect for fresh eating, baking apple pie, apple crisp, making applesauce or freezing. Whatever you need — we’ll have the apple to meet it!
Apples! The healthy choice!
If you watch what you eat — apples must be on your menu! A medium sized apple is a fat-free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free food. In addition, apples are an excellent source of fiber-more than most hot or cold cereals! All this and only 80 calories per serving!
