Every year in September we get together with some of our super close friends and head to our favorite apple orchard.

We use to go to orchards that offered rides, jungle gyms, petting zoo and hayrides; but Jon wanted something more low key one year so we decided to try a place that was “just” an orchard. After our first visit to JQ Fruit Farm we were hooked. The owner is so kind and easy going. She welcomes our high energy kids with eagerness. This past summer she told me that many farms in the area are starting to request that kids stay home because they damage the plants sometimes. She disagrees with this idea. She feels that it is important to let kids learn where fruit comes from and that it is important to encourage families spending time together. I couldn’t agree more with her.

Another reason why we love this fruit farm is because they try hard to avoid spraying herbicides and pesticides on their plants. When they do have to spray, they go the extra mile to make sure that they spray with organic chemicals only. I love her integrity.

The orchard has a wide variety of apples. Of course they have the Minnesota favorite, Honey Crisp. They also have Snow Sweet, Beacon, Haralsons, Sweet Sixteens, Connel Reds, Honey Golds, and a few other varieties. I personally really like the Sweet Sixteens to munch on and the Haralson’s to make pies with. Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm
