Wisconsin Apple Orchards with More

It’s fall and nothing beats the satisfying crunch of an apple straight from an orchard. These Wisconsin apple orchards offer up autumn’s tastiest staple, plus a little something extra.

If you’re looking for fruit wines, the Apple Barn Orchard & Winery in Elkhorn is the stop for you. This orchard has free fruit wine sampling, along with over a dozen apple varieties. Peaches and strawberries are also available in the summer.

Head over to Carlson’s Orchard and Gallery in Eau Claire for some art with your apples. Local artist Stacy Carlson sells hand-painted furniture and custom wall paintings at this family owned business. You can also pick up your Christmas wreaths or some jams and jellies here.

For orchard lovers who want to go all out, Erickson’s Orchard & Country Store in Bayfield has over 2,500 apple trees to pick from – literally.  Choose if you’d like to pick your own or save the work for someone else.  Erickson’s also has an antique barn and a country store on the property, so bring some extra shopping money.

Kickapoo Orchard in Gays Mills is all about variety. With over 50 apple varieties from late summer into the fall, even the most indecisive person can be kept happy throughout the season. Before taking some apples home with you, get lost in the orchard’s sunflower-corn maze, or lose yourself in art by Marlene Myer on sale in the store.
