Support local agriculture and make lifelong memories by picking your own fruit or cutting your own holiday tree at Linvilla Orchards!

The most up-to-the-minute picking information is posted on the web including crop selection, predicted schedules, pricing, picking conditions, tips and guidelines.  linvilla.com

We have an amazing team of individuals who are passionate about what they do. To share these passions we offer a wide range of classes to enjoy. Some of the classes include plant seminars, cooking classes, fairy garden classes, wreath making, Pick-And-Learn, and more.

Classes are often taught by Farmer Norm who has been the Farm Manager at Linvilla for 25 years. He oversees over 200 acres of farmland and over 24 different crops. He and his team grow delicious local produce from April – November and Christmas trees in December.
