Planning Your Trip

 

Located in the picturesque lake and hill country of Southern Minnesota, Irish Mountain Orchard makes an excellent morning or afternoon destination!


Visitors can expect to sample various varieties of apples, including Zestar, Honeycrisp, Fireside/Connel Red, & Haralson.  All of our apples are for sale in 5lb and 10lb bags, as well as 1/2 and full bushel boxes. Different varieties ripen at different times, so be sure to check the Apple Varieties page for availability.

We do not have a formal store front, but instead prefer to keep our prices low by selling our fruit directly to the public from our production and packing facility at the orchard.  Location, directions, and maps are below.
