Iowa Orchard

9875 Meredith Drive
Urbandale, IA 50322



Beginning in 1939 Winton Etchen was 16 when he planted 50 apple trees in northern Iowa. In 1960, he and his wife Dorothy moved to Des Moines and started Iowa Orchard in 1975. Even though it has been over 40 years, a lot of Iowan’s still don’t realize, we are located right in the middle of Urbandale – 4 acres of apples and pie bakery.

In 1991 Bryan, Winton’s younger son started as the manager/part-owner of Iowa Orchard. With Winton’s retirement in 2000, Bryan became the sole owner of the orchard. Along with his mother Dorothy and sister Denise, they envisioned the origination of the orchard bakery.
