Once a prize beef cattle operation, Southwind Orchards has grown to be one of the premier apple orchards in Minnesota. The unique topography of the Driftless Area along the Mississippi River results in micro-climates that allow us to grow a wide variety of apples. While we are always seeking out the latest varieties to plant, we know many of the older varieties remain customer favorites. Therefore, we strive to maintain a mix of both older and newer kinds of apples.
