Fresh Acres Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch

8160 72nd St NE, Monticello, MN 55362

Fresh Acres “was founded in 2016 when two crazy corporate-types decided to take a leap into farming.  Our mission was, and remains, to produce healthy, locally grown food to feed your family, as well as our own.  In that vein, we purchase non-GMO seeds from carefully sourced seed companies, and we do not use harsh fertilizers and chemicals – we are not certified organic, but we grow in an organic manner. 

We also raise animals on the farm, closer to the way God intended them to be raised – they are free-range / pasture-raised, and we supplement with soy-free, transitional-organic feed.

In 2018, we added to our mission by sharing the farm with others through a corn maze.  We have all the usual things expected at a corn maze such as additional activities (pumpkin patch, petting zoo, inflatables, combine slide, yard games, corn cannon, bale mountain, and more), as well as vendors to provide food.”

Brand Farms

18605 Biscayne Ave, Farmington, MN 55024

Brand Farms is a “small family farm. Originally purchased by Anton and Marie Brand, German immigrants, and has been passed down through four generations. Currently, Aaron Brand is the fourth generation who farms with his father, John. His 89 year old grandfather, Richard, still has a daily presence on the farm.

When Aaron graduated from college he choose to expand the farm, not by increasing the dairy herd, but by choosing to produce products they’ve never had before. He began with a few hens for their eggs and slowly expanded to 2000 that he has now. At the same time, he heard about a defunct apple orchard whose owner was looking to lease it.

He also planted a few apple trees on the farm building site, which has expanded over the years to the current 20 acres and 7,000 trees. Most of the trees are Minnesota varieties, apples that were developed here in Minnesota.

We are primarily a dairy farm in Farmington, MN. We also sell eggs, apples, raspberries, honey and apple products. Check back with us for new products this fall!”

In the fall they have a sunflower field, pick-your-own apples and pumpkins, as well as hay rides and some scheduled hay ride tours.

Croix Farm Orchard

12971 St Croix Trail S, Hastings, MN 55033

Croix Farm Orchard – “In 1980, John and Kay Leadholm decided to make a move from Duluth, Minnesota. Having spent most of his life as a pilot, John was looking for something completely different to do – and they decided an apple orchard was just the perfect thing. A new hobby, a chance to learn how to grow apples, and a way to give families in the community special Fall memories. John always said he wanted a place for “city kids” to get out and see the country.

They looked at orchards in Washington and Oregon, but fell in love with this property and decided to stay a little closer to home. John and Kay raised their two children on the orchard and have truly turned it into a family business.

In 2019, we lost both John and Kay to different illnesses. We hope they are now living where apples are ripe year round! John and Kay’s two kids – Jeff and Sara – have embraced the family business. Jeff and Sara, along with their families, are excited to welcome you to the orchard.

We have a huge variety of apples available to you throughout the season! Some of the apples we have at our orchard are: Whitney Crab, Beacon, Paula Red, Zestar, Ginger Gold, Sweet Tango, Chestnut Crab, Cortland, NW Greening, McIntosh, Sweet 16, Honey Crisp, Gala, SweeTango, Haralson, Honey Gold, Regent, Connell Red, Golden Russett, Fireside, Keepsake…and so many more!

Apple varieties ripen at different times of the Fall – so make sure to call ahead if you are looking for a specific variety!”
