Nelson's Apple Farm
Nelson's Apple Farm has been growing premium quality apples since 1974. In the 40+ years of business, the goal has always been and remains to provide consumers with top tier apples and offer a fun-filled experience on the farm for the whole family.
Nelson’s Apple Farm attractions includes - Pumpkins, Squash, Gourds, Apple Fun, Wagon Rides and much more.
The pumpkin fairy has visited the orchard. This year the fairy brought many smaller pumpkins. All pumpkins are up by gift shop next to the fence line and on the porch.
Choose from eight varieties of squash hand planted, grown to perfection and picked at the ideal time. Varieties include: Waltham Butternut, Table Queen Acorn, Buttercup Burgess, Emerald Buttercup, Winter Carnival, Sweet Dumpling.
Nothing says autumn in Minnesota quite like a basketful of ornamental gourds sitting on the porch step or as decoration on the dining room table. Make your porch burst with color this fall with gourds.
