Emma Krumbee’s Orchard and Farm is just 45 miles south of Minneapolis-St, Paul, Minnesota along highway 169. It is a great place to take the family for some fun and quality time. You can go anytime of the year and find it fascinating, yet fall is one of the best times to go since it has many autumn activities. Yet the whole family can find something fun to do there in spring, summer, fall or winter.
As you drive along the road to the farm you will see lines of apple trees. The apple trees are warm and inviting and they will exhilarate you as you take the drive to the farm. If you go in the fall you can take the Apple Express, which is a small train that will give you a ride to the Great Pumpkin Patch so your children can pick out their Halloween pumpkin. You will also find flowers, gourds and cornstalks that you can purchase for your fall decorations at your home.
When the family gets hungry Emma Krumbee’s has a fabulous restaurant that has food like grandma cooks. The restaurant is large and comfortable with wood floors and comfortable seating for a family. A pond is in view with occasional water fowl gracing it. Kids can roam around and enjoy the decorations while waiting for the food they have ordered. You can find great American cuisine plus German food that is also available like bockwurst or sauerkraut. After dinner you can have some apple pie that melts in your mouth or one of the other desserts they offer.
A large General store features many nice gifts and souvenirs that you can take home with you for yourself or friends. And if you are in the mood for a tasty treat you can get ice cream in many different flavors that are hand dipped. Mint brownies, root beer floats or malts are other examples of the treats you can get.
The fall is the best time of year to take your children since they have a very large scarecrow exhibit that stretches along behind the buildings of the farm. You can take a beautiful walk along the line of scarecrows and enjoy them.
For an admission fee of $5.00 you can visit a petting zoo, rope maze, tombstone forest, and much more at Emma Krumbee’s Orchard and Farm. Driving away can be somewhat of a challenge if you want to turn south out of the farm since they do not allow left turns onto highway 169. You can only turn right so you will have to go a bit out of the way before you can turn around to drive south. For more information you can go to http://emmakrumbees.com/ .
