Our small family-run business is celebrating over 20 years of bringing your family the delights of the autumn harvest.

Welcome to Prairie Sky Orchard | Ralph & Sue Ellen Arndt - Owners2013 was a great year! We enjoyed a busy April planting 500 new dwarf apple trees using a high density planting system. The month of May brought an abundance of apple blossoms making the orchard beautiful and the smell heavenly. The rains throughout the spring and summer kept the trees and apples healthy. During this autumn season of harvest, we are so thankful for the bountiful crop the Lord has given us this year!

We are now closed for the 2013 season and want to thank all our loyal customers for another great year. See you again in Sept 2014.

To stay updated in the off-season, be sure to 'Like' our Facebook page.

See you next year!
