Beasley's Orchard began in the mid-1940s when Milton and Irene Beasley purchased the farm. They raised
livestock (hogs, cattle and chickens) and grain. The family which included three children, Shirley, Sharon and
John, also enjoyed gardening and tending a small apple orchard.
One year, an over abundant garden
prompted sales out of young John's little red wagon, which was set up next to the nearest
road, US 36. Over the years, the family business evolved from that first sale of tomatoes! Crops that are now produced each year
for wholesale and retail sales include: Apples, Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Green Beans, Cucumbers, Peppers,
Squash, Melons and Pumpkins. The barn that houses the market was built shortly after the Civil War using
classic peg and beam construction. It has been used for every aspect of farming including: hay storage,
dairying, pork and poultry production, horses and now a retail market, apple packing and cider mill.
Special features of the farm include the "Heartland Apple Festival" held the first two weekends in October and
a U-pick pumpkin patch accessible by hayrides every weekend in October. Customized fruit baskets and
shipping boxes are available throughout the holiday season.
May your time spent at Beasley's be long remembered!
