Blue Heron Orchard

“We are a Certified Organic apple orchard and vegetable farm in LaGrange, Missouri.”

“Blue Heron Orchard is a certified organic farm with twenty-six acres on loess hills, one mile from the Mississippi in Northeast Missouri. The farm acreage is divided; five in apples, one and a half devoted to high tunnels and garden, seven in native grasses, forbes and pasture, with the balance in hardwood forest. We have an on-farm state and federally inspected processing kitchen for adding value to our apples and vegetables.”
