Our History

Beasley's Orchard began in 1946 when Milton and Irene Beasley purchased the farm. They raised livestock (hogs, cattle and chickens) and grain. The family which included three children, Shirley, Sharon and John, also enjoyed gardening and tending a small apple orchard.

One year, an over abundant garden prompted sales out of young John's little red wagon, which was set up next to the nearest road, US 36. Over the years, the family business evolved from that first sale of tomatoes! Crops that are now produced each year for wholesale and retail sales include: Apples, Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Green Beans, Cucumbers, Peppers, Eggplant, Squash, Cantaloupe, Watermelon and Pumpkins. The barn that houses the market was built shortly after the Civil War using classic peg and beam construction. It has been used for every aspect of farming including: hay storage, dairying, pork and poultry production, horses and now a retail market, apple packing and cider mill.

Special features of the farm include the "Heartland Apple Festival" held the first two weekends in October and a U-pick pumpkin patch accessible by hayrides every weekend in October. Customized fruit baskets and shipping boxes are available throughout the holiday season.

Hours:

We attended the Apple Festival and it was very nice. There was a corn maze, a pony cart, a puppet show, a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch, a tent that served wine, a tent full of vendors, the orchard and of course apples, cider, caramel apples and an assortment of other delicious items for sale in the orchard store! This is an annual event that can be as inexpensive as you choose. We had a good time and will likely go again. Many thanks to Beasley's!

Been here 2 years in a row for the festival in the fall & will keep going back. They have fun stuff for the kids to do. Several vendors set up. So many pumpkins to choose from. The tasty treats inside the store are great. We always buy extra to take home with us. A fun time for the whole family.

I’m not sure why there are bad reviews on here. My husband, myself, and 2 1/2 year old twin daughters went here today and had the best time! We picked out pumpkins, climbed on the hay, picked apples, enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Yes we spent money but we expected to for pumpkins and apples. In all honesty things were reasonably priced and the staff was friendly and helpful. We will defiantly be going back and I reccommend this place to anyone looking for something fun and exciting to do with the family. I wish the girls didn’t get so tired out for us to be able to stay longer :) thank you everyone for the memories and the fun day! It was the fall Apple festival so there was lots of other activities there as well but overall totally worth every minute!

A lot of fun things to do for the kids. However the lines are very long at the checkouts. I would have bought some more stuff if I wouldn't had to wait in line so long. Beautiful mums lots of pumpkins. Lots of fun. The only thing I would change, this time of year anyway... Is they need more checkers. Waiting in line to pay for stuff takes forever.

Super friendly and was great with the children. We were there on a school field trip and it was a pleasure.
