The orchard has several varieties of apples. Honey Crisp should be ripe for picking on September 15. This popular apple, developed by the University of Minnesota, is crisp and tart for eating, and also suitable for baking. Already picked apples include State Fair and Zestar. The orchard has containers if you want to pick apples. Caramel apples are also for sale.

Cider sampling: Free for small samples; or $10 for a flight of six large samples (generous enough for a couple to share.)

The orchard plans to feature Blue Grass Music on September 15. See page 7 for driving directions. The orchard is about an hour’s drive south of the Twin Cities.

Lunch Options at Montgomery Orchard:

Pizzeria 201 (from Montgomery) will be at the orchard with a wood-fired oven. Buy your own pizza from their menu: a Gluten Free option should be available.

If you prefer, you may bring your own picnic food. Picnic tables are under trees, and the Cider Haus is a roofed building. You may want to bring a lawn chair.

The parking lot is gravel and some walking surfaces are uneven and sloped.

Program: Urban Pioneers by Sam Brungardt on MODERN HARVEST


Our February program on the "Dirty Thirties" (presented by Duane Stabler) related to land management practices in the Depression Era that contributed to economic failures for many farmers in the Great Plains.  The government enabled and even encouraged some practices, like plowing native prairie grasses, that contributed to soil erosion.  But much was learned about soil conservation after legislators in Washington were stunned to see clouds of Great Plains dust darken the skies over the nation's capital.
