Fall in Minnesota: Afton Apple Orchard

Afton Apple Orchard
14421 So. 90th St. · Hastings, MN 55033
Drive out to Afton Apple Orchard for a pleasant, interesting, and healthful way for you and your family to enjoy a day in the country. 
We have over 250+ beautiful acres producing delicious
Minnesota grown strawberries, raspberries, pumpkins and
14 different varieties of apples that can be picked by our
customers at the peak of perfection.
Apple picking season starts mid-August, and we normally are able to pick pretty close to the end of October. Don't miss our apple festival September 26th & 27th, Oct 3rd & 4th, and 10th & 11th, 2020!  We are open 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm through Halloween. General admission is $5.00 for ages 5 and older and $4.00 for ages 4 and younger.
Fall Raspberry season begins mid August and goes until about mid-October, unless we get a hard freeze. Usually later in the week is better for picking because of the heavy picking on weekends. Always call for picking conditions before coming to pick berries.
We have a HUGE playground, Straw Mountain, Retread Hill and Johnny Combine. Kids love the friendly critters in our petting farm - it's always expanding! 
Hayrides into the orchard for picking (or just for fun!) start Labor Day weekend, including Labor Day. They run on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 6pm and Monday-Friday from 12pm to 6pm. We are still open for picking during the weekdays. The weekdays are a little quieter for picking. Please call for information or directions - or check out our directions page!  
Our HUGE 15 acre corn maze will be opening on Saturday, September 19, 2020. There are over 6 miles of twists and turns to boggle both the extra sharp and the directionally challenged minds! Please visit our corn maze page to get the exact hours and other important information about this exciting attraction!
Pumpkin picking season starts late September and goes through the end of October. We have mini-pumpkins, pie pumpkins, small jack-o-lanterns, medium pumpkins and very large pumpkins. We also have gourds, several varieties of squash and ornamental decorating corn - small and large.  
We have frozen unbaked apple pies made from Minnesota-grown apples, frozen apple crisps, homemade jams, sugar-free jams, fresh honey, sweet maple syrup and a variety of creamy fruit butters for sale! For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
Strawberry season starts approximately the second week in June to approximately mid-July. We will be open 7 days a week, 7am-3pm weather permitting or until picked out. Always call for an update on picking conditions or any changes in hours before coming to pick berries.
We have made connections with some of the best fruit growers and we are pleased to offer you the chance to order some of the finest blueberries, sweet dark cherries, tart cherries and peaches.  Order now for July cherries and blueberries and August peaches and blueberries!
If you are planning a wedding or special occasion get-together, we have a beautiful rental building available. Our rental hall will hold up to 300 people inside or many more guests outside.
