Crazy About Apples
Lowell and Phyllis Schaper built their family home on forty rolling acres in Minnetrista. Four years later in 1976 after the first planting of some 600 apple trees, Minnetonka Orchards was born. For the last 35 years, this family-owned and operated apple orchard has been worked by the family under the guidance of Lowell and Phyllis and has blossomed into a first-class Agri-tourism destination for families in the Twin Cities and beyond. Boasting some 12 acres of rolling apple orchards, the business has grown into a popular fall destination for families seeking a unique experience.
Starting in 2005, Minnetonka Orchards began hosting outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. Today, they offer wedding ceremonies in the orchard and receptions in their 5,000 square-foot event tent starting in May. With enough room to accommodate large events, Minnetonka Orchards also offers food menu services, orchard style! If you can dream it up, Minnetonka Orchards has the tools to help make your event truly unique.
