Welcome to Minnetonka Orchards!


Welcome to Minnetonka Orchards.  We are open for currently for  Weddings, Tours, Birthday Parties, and Corporate events.  Picking season is just around the corner, and we’re working hard to ensure a great harvest in 2016.

If you’ve never been here before, here’s a quick overview:

While Apples are our passion, we enjoy sharing our scenic grounds with anyone looking for a great time – whether it be a day out with your family, a party with your co-workers, a tour with your school mates, a birthday party with all your friends, or your very special wedding day!

We can help you with any and all details of your event, and show you the best picking spots when the apples are ready.

We are a PET FRIENDLY Orchard (please have all dogs on a leash), offer many things for kids to do while they’re here, and have some of the best tasting apples on the trees and also available in our retail barn during the growing season.  You will also find a great selection of Gourds, Cinderella Pumpkins and Squash in the retail barn too!

We accept cash and all major credit cards (no checks please).

The MINNESOTA TWINS organization was here on a video shoot for their 2015 TC Stocking Cap Giveaway In October 2015 – check it out!

Caramel House

While you’re here,feel free to visit the Brat house, Donut Hut, Our New Caramel Apple House, Retail Barn, petting zoo (with our newest furry friend Nemo the sheep), Corn Maze, and Huge Hay Mountain!

Our Orchard also offers U-pick Apples, hayrides, face painting, and apple express cart rides.

In 2015, we were proud to be one of the featured stops on the Annual Orchard Crawl. Find out more about it by viewing videos from KARE11 and Channel12 TV.
