Sponsels Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard   http://minnesotaharvest.net/

Location: Jordan
Hours: 10am – 6pm weekdays; 9am – 6pm weekends
Not only is this place one of the best in the biz (Hot food! Live music! Pumpkins! Stawberries! Wagon Rides! OMDOG!), but they’re going to work on adding a winery too. And you can get a sneak peek by visiting their apple wine bar while you’re on site. Perfect for boozehounds everywhere!

 

Applewood Orchard       http://applewoodorchard.com/applewood1/

Location: Lakeville
Hours: 10:00am – 6:00pm daily
Okay, there is a ridiculous amount of stuff to do here: pick your own apples, hayrides on the weekends, pumpkins, a corn maze shaped like a dinosaur. Pile the kids, both two-legged and four-, into the car and get going!

Whistling Well Farm   http://whistlingwellfarm.com/

Location: Hastings
Hours: 9am – 6pm daily
Not to belittle their (seriously excellent) apple selection, but this place is WAY more than just apples: you can also pick your own pumpkins, dig your own fall mums, or shop to your heart’s content for jams, ciders, gourds, squash, fall decorations, honey, fall decorations, ornamental corn, etc. etc. etc. It feels necessary that you go here.

Please remember to bring something to pick up after your dog!
