Thompson's Hillcrest Orchard

Gene and Barb Thompson started Thompson's Hillcrest Orchard in 1996 when they, along with their children, moved to the rolling hills of Elko, Minnesota and planted over 200 apple trees. Since then, the orchard has grown to feature over 1,000 trees including U of MN introductions Honeycrisp, SweeTango, and First Kiss. Find them at both the indoor and outdoor Maple Grove Farmers Markets with apples, pies, caramel apples, and more.
