The original orchards were started by our father, Ernest Alldredge, in 1960 in Saint Joseph, Missouri. We grew apples, peaches, plums, and apricots for many years. After Ernest's death, the orchards were sold. However, longing for a return to country life, we purchased the farm near Platte City in 1985, and began planting apple and peach trees. We opened for business in 1991, and shortly after began offering school tours and hayride parties. Our long-time customers have seen many changes over the years, and even now, our business continues to grow and evolve.
