Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm

Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm

The beginning of fall in Minnesota is always a rush to pack in everything: all the fun bits of summer, like “up north” lake life, along with all the great fall activities that begin, like apple picking. Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm outside of Jordan is the epitome of that early fall “apple picking” experience- not only are there plenty of apples to be picked, they even have a sunflower maze and an apple catapult!

Head out to the orchard on a “hayride” (no hay) and pick a peck of apples before enjoying the rest of Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm. If you’re not sure what kind of apple you want to pick, head over to the apple tasting section to try every apple in season at the moment.

Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm Details:

It costs $20 for a peck of you-pick apples. Buying a peck from the already picked section in the store will cost you less, but you can pack your bag full of apples if you do “Pick-your-own.”

It will probably cost you $5 per car to enter Minnesota Harvest Apple Farm on the weekends. This is the only downside to the entire place, but if you spend several hours playing on their jungle gym, exploring the apple orchard and enjoying the day then it’s worth it (or go during the week and save the money all together).

When: Monday through Friday 10 to 5. Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 6 pm

Where: 8251 Old Hwy 169 Blvd, Jordan, MN 55352

Jim's Apple Farm and Big Yellow Barn in Jordan

If you don’t want to pick apples, or venture out into nature, then stop by the Big Yellow Barn, aka Jim’s Apple Farm right on Hwy 169. (And stock up on all the candy you’ve ever wanted while there!)

Homemade applesauce brings you closer to home - like going to grandmas

Finish off the experience by taking your peck of apples and make fresh applesauce!

      It’s actually one of the few I’ve been to as I enjoy going there so much! I should probably branch out and check out a few too!

  2. For some reason I always bypass the orchard and head straight to the candy store! Definitely have to check out the Apple Orchard next time.

      LOL Jenn! I can completely understand that- the candy store is much more accessible! I like to wrap them all up into one trip!

    I grew up coming here with my grandparents. I’ve tried several orchards since and none compare to MN Harvest :) Looking forward to the sunflower maze, that must be new? And BTW, love your photos!

      Bre- the sunflower maze was so cool! Yes, I think it’s new because last time I was there they had a corn maze that wasn’t nearly as good.
      I also agree with you that this one seems to be one of the best for visiting- I love going here. And THANK YOU so much for the love on my photos :-)

  4. I love apple farms! We usually go to Aamodt’s in Stillwater, but this would be a fun trip as well especially because of the candy store.

      Thanks Beth! I’ve never been to Aamodt’s- gonna have to add it to the list :-) Any excuse to pick apples (and eat apple pie) right!?

  5. So fun! I love your photos. Visiting orchards is always such fun!
