Home / Our Orchard

Minnetonka Orchards is a family-owned-and-operated orchard founded in 1976, which is when the first some 600 apple trees were planted. For the last 35 years, the orchard has been operated under the guidance of Lowell and Phyllis Schaper.

The orchard now boasts some 12 acres of rolling apple orchards and the business has grown into a popular fall destination for families seeking a unique and fun outdoor experience.

Starting in 2005, Minnetonka Orchards started hosting outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. Today, wedding ceremonies and receptions at the orchard have access to a 5,000 square-foot event tent, starting in May.

Minnetonka Orchard also hosts many other events, such as corporate events, team building events, school tours, birthday parties, Bat/Bar Mitzvah celebrations, end of life celebrations, graduation parties and more.
