Weston's Antique Apple Orchard

19760 National Ave.
New Berlin, WI, 53146, United States
TEL: (262) 679-2862

Originally planted by orchardist Ken Weston's grandparents as a hedge against the Depression, this orchard grew to inspire such respect that it once hosted Julia Child for a visit. Weston's offerings have grown over the years to include more than 100 apple varieties, many of them rare.
What to Pick: Among the orchard's most unusual heirlooms are the Old Church and Lemonade apples, two of about a dozen varieties that grow nowhere else on earth; another, the Strawberry Chenango, is "so fragile you have to pick it with gloves," Weston says. "It smells and tastes just like a rose."
Most Unusual Offering: The orchard's 16 lush, panoramic acres and 1901 Dutch farmhouse are part of the New Berlin Historic Settlement, a National Register rural landmark. Apples aside, the orchard is worth wandering just for the scenery.
Bells & Whistles: Regular horticulture and grafting classes; a petting zoo; open-farmhouse tours; barrel rides for kids.
