Nothing tastes better than fresh picked fruit
and there is no better way to get the real fresh picked taste
than to get it right from the orchard.

Our farm has been welcoming generations of
both "local pickers" and "city pickers"
with the delightful experience of enjoying fresh fruit
directly from the actual sources - our wide variety of apple trees.

No Dogs Please -
We Have Two Puppies at the
Orchard who love people but not other dogs.

Meet Our Orchards


Every single apple is picked by hand. Sorted the same way. The fruit is also beautiful.

Meet Our Don Baker Farm Family

Dale Baker and Mother Nature are the two elements that make the fruit taste better here than anywhere else. Dale is a third generation grower who creates and selects each and every piece of fruit - and you can taste it in every bite.
