Where is Afton Apple Orchard?
Afton Apple Orchard is about 30 minutes southeast of the Twin Cities. It’s on 190+ acres with 13 varieties of apples, plus strawberries, raspberries and pumpkins. At the entrance there are sampling stations where you can try the various apples available that day, plus apple cider and other treats.
