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.

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.

This orchard is gorgeous and very well kept. There is great apple variety and lots of fun gifts to purchase in the store. I have given it 3 stars because everything is so so expensive. If you plan on doing anything besides getting apples, you will spend $100+ for a normal sized family, half day of fun. An apple cider slushie is $5! They are $1 at Anderson. We live 10 min away from Beasley's but I'd rather drive 30 min to Anderson. I feel like I am a customer at Beasley's whereas I feel like family at Anderson. In my opinion, it's commercialized.

We had a great time there. I usually don't like apple cider but theirs was really good. We loved the corn maze and play area for the kids. Both were worth paying for. The apples tasted great and the kids had fun picking pumpkins too.

The place is really well kept and has a lot for people to do. Tons of activities for kids. The apple cider is as good as they told me at the entrance if not better too. I found it to be a fun first time going and so did my family.
