We are happy to announce that we are beginning pick-your-own apples at our new Granger location for Iowa Orchard. Some of you know this as the place on Hwy 141 where you picked strawberries this June. This new system of apple growing yields the largest, cleanest, and most beautiful fruit you will ever see. Check out this picture that I included of a similar row. You have to see our fruit to believe it! And what fun for the whole family.
Pick your own(weather permitting) will include the following varieties(ripeness permitting):
HoneyCrisp, Gala, McIntosh, Jonathan, Empire, Cortland, Fuji, Red and Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Pink Lady, and Braeburn.
We have been growing with this system for more than a decade, but now we are allowing the public to experience the picking, but only at our Granger location. It is just a few minutes from our main Urbandale orchard. The exact address is 13140 NW 102nd Ave, Granger, 50109. It is immediately off of HWY 141.
We are open from 9am to 5pm everyday (7days/week). We do not offer pick-your-own in Urbandale because of the size and age of the trees.
We do not charge an entrance fee, but we do have a 1/2 peck minimum for everyone except if in a stroller. “If you’re walkin’, you’re pickin’ ” my Dad would say. We look very forward to seeing you out here picking this premium fruit! You have to see it to believe it! If you have questions you may call 515-707-3809 and ask Bryan. I will return messages in the evening.
