Apple Season - Twin Cities, MN - Counselor Realty

Peak apple harvest is mid-September around the Twin Cities, so many of our locals are preparing to visit their favorite local orchards for some apple picking. Early fall is the best time to find fresh, juicy apples, and our orchards carry several delicious varieties. 

However, we all know apple harvest events are about more than just apples. It's a time to get together and enjoy all the great things about the fall season, not to mention games, activities, and entertainment. Here are some of our favorite Apple picking destinations around the Twin Cities where you can kick off the fall season this year.

  • University of Minnesota Arboretum Applehouse - 7485 Rolling Acres Rd., Victoria, MN 55386
    It only takes one visit to the University of Minnesota Arboretum Applehouse to put you in the fall spirit. Choose from a rotating variety of fresh-picked apples from September through November, or indulge in fresh apple cider or an apple cider mini donut. You'll also find a shop with many holiday-themed products. All proceeds from the Applehouse support the arboretum, just a few miles away from some great Minneapolis homes for sale

  • Orchard Hill - 131 Wentworth Ave. W, West St. Paul, MN 55118
    Delicious apples and sweet treats are to be had at Orchard Hill. This small, low-key orchard offers some of Twin City's tastiest apples. You'll also find many other apple-based products, including apple pies, caramel apples, and apple crisps. The orchard is open Thursday-Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm during apple season, and it's just a short drive from some beautiful St. Paul homes for sale

  • Aamodt's Apple Farm - 6428 Manning Ave. N, Stillwater, MN 55082
    This charming local orchard is a popular autumn destination where the whole family can embark on an apple-picking expedition. Pick your own Paula Red apples at Aamodt's Apple Farm. You can also buy fresh Zestar, Mantet, or Duchess apples in the barn. Either way, be sure to tour one of these beautiful White Bear Lake homes for sale after you visit the farm.

  • Knapton's Orchard - 5695 Hwy 55, Rockford, MN 55373
    Knapton's Orchard offers U-Pick apples throughout the fall season and is a great family destination. Choose from Zestar, State Fair, Centennial, and Pristine apples at this lovely local orchard. Many other fruits and vegetables are also available for picking, so call ahead to see what's available. Don't forget to schedule a tour of one of these nearby Maple Grove homes for sale after your visit.

  • Victoria Valley Orchard - 4304 Victoria St. N, Shoreview, MN 55126
    Just down the road from these Shoreview homes for sale is one of the area's best local orchards. Victoria Valley Orchard offers some of the freshest apples in the area (21 varieties) and some amazing apple pies, so it's definitely worth the stop. While you can't pick your own apples, you can take a stroll through the beautiful orchard. There is no admission fee, and the orchard is open every Thursday through Sunday until the end of the fall season.

Getting into the fall spirit is easy when you live near a Minnesota orchard. For more information on Twin City living, call today.
