Black River Orchard
Black River Orchard is located only 1/2 mile off Highway 29 on County Rd O in Withee. Barb and Gordy planted 25 new trees in 2001 and today they take care of over 900 trees. (A hobby gone wild!) Their trees are the semi-dwarf variety and make it easy to pick the apples yourself. The orchard is family-friendly with picnic tables and a playground. You are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and let the kids romp through the very well maintained orchard.
They offer twelve varieties of apples including the popular Zestar, Honeycrisp and Snow Sweet. They also make their own apple cider and harvest honey from their hives. Black River Orchard is open on Saturdays and Sundays, or by appointment.
