Appleberry Orchard

2469 Highway 2
Donnellson, IA 52625


Appleberry Orchard is owned and farmed by Ryan and Jessica Welch, and today includes 22 acres of apple orchards, a petting farm, children's play area, and a beautiful farm market.

The first apple tree was planted on this property in 1852, making this the oldest working orchard in the state of Iowa.

The historic barn with windowed cupola, shown in the picture above, was constructed in 1882 and is registered as a National Historic Site. The barn is today used for our petting farm, where your family can see Boer goats, miniature donkey, miniature pony, chickens, rabbits, peacocks and the impressive longhorn cattle.
