History

Our story at the Bayfield Apple Company really starts about 25 years ago as Einar Olsen assembled some orchards and began processing cider.  He began making jam 10 years ago, and started distribution to local grocery stores.  In the fall of 2009, he sold the operation and a new team took over.  They realized the potential some fresh energy could bring to the table. 

The first decision was an easy one...they began to become certified organic.  Although the Bayfield Apple Company already used integrated pest management to reduce the use of sprays, we believed that we could do better and go straight to organic production.

The next straightforward idea was expanding production.  We leased 15 acres from adjoining landowners that had neglected orchards and brought them back to production, as well as planting several hundred new trees on the "home farm."  Our idea is to make full utilization of the resources available, and seeing apples rot on neighbors trees, because no one cared for them, seemed like a waste.

Our current fruit production includes: seventeen varieties of apples, pears, cherries, currants and blueberries.
