Our Mission 

What began as a hobby in 1994 with 200 apple trees has expanded into over 3,000 and a wide variety of produce.


Peifer Orchards has become a local favorite. We provide high quality local grown produce to our surrounding communities.

Our Orchard House Gift Shop features unique gifts handcrafted by local artisans.

Our Fresh Pressed

Apple Cider

Our fresh apple cider is a seasonal favorite. During the fall, cider is pressed twice a week to keep up with its demand. It is made with only the freshest apple varieties available at the time, making each batch unique.


We intentionally press small batches to create the highest quality apple cider. Our cider is also unpasteurized, this keeps the cider in its natural state, full of flavor and nutritional benefits.

Please note that our apple cider tends to sell out on weekends during September & October. Give us a call to make sure it's in stock before making a special trip.
