-Graves Family Orchard Est. July 2021-
Owner Danielle Graves, and husband, Tyler Graves were born and raised in southern Wisconsin. After traveling and spending some time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, they decided to move back and take on the enormous responsibility of an already established orchard.
ABOUT THE ORCHARD
Graves Family Orchard sits on 23 beautiful acres with over 2,100 apple trees that consist of over 74 varieties, including pears and plums. The orchard is located in Brownsville, WI.
The orchard was formerly known as Pieper's Fruit Farm, founded over 80 years ago. Our Prime Gold variety is special as it was Gilbert Pieper's early ripening Golden Delicious strain.
There's a gift shop featuring homemade apple sauce, hand-pressed cider, pies, turnovers, and local goods such as honey, condiments, and merchandise. You can either do U-Pick or purchase already-picked apples by the 1/2 peck or by the bushel.
Implementing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles allow us to strengthen the Orchard's ecosystem. This approach will enable us to produce high-quality fruits and vegetables while minimizing our impact on the environment. Graves Family Orchard uses only Organic Practices with a low spray approach.
We are striving to become a
zero waste Orchard.
