Sweetland Orchard, located in Webster, Minnesota, is a charming, family run orchard nestled just 30 minutes south of the Twin Cities area. Specializing in hard cider, as well as apples and pears, this is the perfect place to go in the fall if you're in the mood for a laid back, fun experience.
The space is picturesque, and the perfect spot to relax with friends and family with their provided yard games, lawn chairs, picnic tables, and scenic views.
Inside the barn, you're able to do apple, pear and cider tastings. Try out different apples and pears, find which you like, and create your own peck to take home with you. My two favorites: Sweet Sixteen and Honeycrisp.
In addition to the apples, be sure to try the cider! Sweetland has excellent ciders with different flavor varieties to try. My two favorites: Scrumpy's Cherry Rhubarb and Perennial.
I'd highly recommend a visit to Sweetland Orchard. If you aren't able to visit the physical location (which would be a shame!), you can also purchase their ciders at the liquor stores listed here.
