We are happy to announce that we are beginning pick-your-own
apples at our new Granger location for Iowa Orchard. Some of
you know this as the place on Hwy 141 where you picked strawberries this June. This new system of apple growing yields the largest,
cleanest, and most beautiful fruit you will ever see. Check out this
picture that I included of a similar row. You have to see our fruit to believe it! And what fun for the whole family.
Pick your own(weather permitting) will include the following varieties(ripeness permitting):
HoneyCrisp, Gala, McIntosh, Jonathan, Empire, Cortland, Fuji,
Red and Golden Delicious, and Jonagold,
We have been growing with this system for more than a decade, but
now we are allowing the public to experience the picking, but only
at our Granger location. It is just a few minutes from our main
Urbandale orchard. The exact address is 13140 NW102nd Ave, Granger, 50109. It is immediately off of HWY 141. We begin tomorrow, Saturday, 9-5-15. We are open from 9am to 5pm everyday (7days/week). We do not offer pick-your-own in Urbandale because
of the size and age of the trees. If you have questions you may call
515-707-3809 and ask Bryan. I will return messages in the evening.
Ultra crisp, medium sweet, excellent for eating.
