Fruit Orchards

Throughout our orchards, you’ll find wonderful varieties of apples, raspberries, cherries, peaches, plums and pears. Just north of the Kitchen Garden is a elegant grape arbor. Not only are the orchards a beautiful place to walk, there’s nothing like the taste of fruit picked right off the tree.

Apple Tree Orchards

Nine varieties of apples are harvested each October from the Children's Farm Orchard, Old Apple Orchard, Dairyland Orchard and Garton Road Orchard.  There are also a number of apple trees scattered at various locations on the property.  We make applesauce, apple jelly, apple juice and apple pies with our harvest.

Grape Vineyard

Grapes are harvested by our farm staff and are used to make our own Christopher Farm & Gardens labeled wine.  We use only grapes grown on the Farm for our production. Seedless table grapes are also grown in the vineyards.

Peach Tree Orchard

For eating fresh or making pie, sweet, juicy peaches epitomize summer.

Pear Tree Orchard

From Hardy Wisconsin to Clapp pears, this fall fruit is a healthy treat. A Farm Family favorite is our Chef George's Spearmint Pear Sauce.  Jarred honey pear halves are also sweet treats when topped with a cherry.

Plum Tree Orchard

As you can see in our pictures, the plum tree branches are loaded with ripening plums come September.  In our orchards we have Stanley, Mt. Royal, Toka and Superior plum trees. Toka plum trees are one of the best pollinator varieties.  Our bee population is also busy pollinating all our fruit trees and helps with our bumper crop harvests.

Raspberry Patches

The raspberries are a favorite fruit at the Farm.  We enjoy ours straight off the bushes and for making preserves and pies. We have raspberries that are in season early summer and late summer/early fall. We have dark, white and red raspberry varieties.
