Family owned and operated since 1981. We at Timberlake Orchard take great pride in providing fresh, high-quality produce to our customers.
Timberlake Orchards large variety of apples allow us to provide our customers with tree-ripened apples as early as mid-August, and as late as the end of Octoberor until we experience a hard frost. All of our apples are tree-ripened, handpicked--off of the trees not the orchard floorand, placed in our 38° cooler for freshness. Visit our orchard and experience the variety of phenomenal tastes and textures associated with our apples.
Environmentally conscientious, Timberlake Orchard uses TRAPS, a monitored weather station, as well as visual tracking to implement IPM (Integrated Pest Management) which allows us to use insecticides only when we have an overpopulation of a specific pest. The health benefits associated with minimum-insecticide use results in some allowable damage to our fruit; but IPM is great for the environment and a major health benefit for our customers!
Timberlake Orchard also provides our customers with an opportunity to buy honey, from the hive that we keep to help set our apple blossoms in May. By the time our bees have stored their honey for winter, they have visited the surrounding soybean fields and basswood trees. The result is a delicious light-colored honey that is thoroughly enjoyable!
Timberlake Orchard offers a variety of fresh vegetables in mid-summer. Our early-planted tomatoes (in our high tunnel) give our customers that first taste of garden-ripened tomatoes. A high tunnel surrounds the tomato plant and provides a plastic roof with roll-up sides for protection. Other fresh produce include peppers (bell, wax, & jalapeno), beets & kohlrabi.
In the Fall Timberlake Orchard offers seasonal items which complement our apple sales. A pick-your-own pumpkin patch. Or, for the less adventurous, we have an assortment of pumpkins, squash and gourds. already picked, and ready for sale. Our cool-weather vegetables include broccoli, cabbage & cauliflower.
Come visit our Orchard and let your family experience our fresh, healthy produce!
