|Sycamore Spring Orchard is owned by Bob and Shirley Hess and
is operated by 4 generations of the Hess family. We grow Black
Raspberries, Pumpkins, Sweet & Sour Cherries, and 11 varieties
of apples. Sycamore Spring Orchard carries fresh produce from
the local area. From Spring through early Summer we carry
bedding plants and beautiful hanging baskets in our greenhouse.
Late in June we start pick-your-own Black Raspberries. During
the Fall we encourage everyone to come to the orchard and pick
their own apples. It is an exceptional experience for the whole
family. The trees are easily accessible even for handicapped
people. Pick-your-own apple season starts in mid August and
runs through mid October. We also offer a great selection of fall
decorations including hardy mums, pumpkins, colorful gourds,
straw bales and scarecrows.
We schedule orchard tours for school groups, scout troops,
etc. The tour loads on a large wagon pulled by a John Deere
tractor. School groups get off the wagon in the orchard and
pick an apple. It's always a challenge to see who can find the
biggest apple. We also offer evening hayride/doggie roasts for
groups of 15 or more. A great family activity for all ages!

There is a bakery in the back of the market offering a full line
of pies, cakes and cookies. Our specialty is our own home-
made apple dumplings. We also make home-made soups and a
variety of jams and jellies. Special orders for birthdays and
other occasions, including fund raisers, are available.
Seasonal and country decorations, apple cider, honey, maple
syrup, real Wisconsin extra sharp cheddar cheese, our own
gift and fruit baskets, all add up to make Sycamore Spring
Orchard worth the trip.
