Welcome to Star Orchard
Traditional pick-your-own apple orchard
For over 50 years, our family-owned and operated orchard east of Appleton in Northeast Wisconsin has been using traditional growing and hand-picking methods to provide quality, locally-grown apples to families just like yours. Come visit and start your own apple picking tradition.
When the apples start to ripen, our pick-your-own or u-pick apples give you the opportunity to walk among the trees and pick to your heart's desire.
With 20 varieties of apples on 55 acres, you'll get to pick from traditional McIntosh and Cortland, to specialty Melrose, Jonagold and Empire apple trees. While you're here, don't forget to stroll through our pumpkin patch and choose your own pumpkins, squash and gourds.
No time to pick your own – no problem! We've done the legwork so you don't have to. Our store has hand-picked bags of apples that are ready to be taken home.
Around mid-September, we'll start having caramel apples on the weekends, as well as begin pressing fresh apple cider. These customer favorites sell out fast though, so check for availability before you come.
We've also teamed up with other local producers to offer you all sorts of treats in our store. Have a sweet tooth? Then try the honey, jams and caramel. Want to add some flare to your meals? Then don't miss the salsa, salad dressings and mustards.
