Visit to Garwood Orchard in LaPorte


We decided to try a new apple orchard this year and discovered Garwood Orchard in LaPorte after some research. So, the wife and I piled into the car on Saturday and went for a drive. Garwood Orchard is located out in the country before you get to LaPorte, it’s not far off Route 2 and really easy to find.

The orchard has two components, a store and the u-pick orchard about a quarter mile down the road. We were there for Apples and went to the u-pick farm. It was great fun. We rode in a old horse drawn wagon to the Red Delicious Apples and had a really fun time picking apples right off the tree.

Garwood Orchard is very quiet and it was very peaceful out in the country. The farm is gorgeous and a pleasure to walk through. We spent about $30 and got enough Apples to last us until the end of the season. It felt good to support a family farm that has been around for six generations.

I love Apples and look forward to this time every year. The apples from Garwood Orchard are unbelievably delicious. We also picked up some giant pumpkins and dried corn to decorate the front of our house.

Check out their website for information on what’s ripe and what’s going on. They have special events throughout the season.
