History

Applacres was started in 1937 by Harley and Irene Clark.  The orchard was started with 15 acres of apple trees and ten acres of peach trees.  The fruit was sold at his roadside stand.

 

Applacres is currently owned by David Byers.  David grew up in an orchard located in Vincennes, Indiana.  After graduating from Purdue in 1959, David spent time selling orchard chemicals and becoming involved in the apple/pear industry in Washington state. David Byers, his father, Robert Byers, and an aunt learned the orchard we now know as Applacres was for sale.  In April of 1962, the Byers family bought the orchard on contract.   Since then they added several buildings and orchards and the roadside business expanded.  At one time Applacres had about 125 acres of fruit trees but have since scaled back to about 70 acres of trees.

Applacres currently grows Apples, Peaches, Pears, Nectarines, Sweet Cherries, Sour Cherries, and Blackberries.  Applacres has a year 'round retail market with bedding plants available in April and May, then fresh fruit grown from our extensive orchard beginning in June and throughout the summer and fall.  After all the fruits are harvested, Applacres continues to operate through the Christmas season and the winter with apples, freshly squeezed apple cider, and cherry cider.  Applacres carries citrus fruit: navel oranges and grapefruit -- always on hand for the holiday season and the winter months.
