Mark Twain wrote fondly of the mighty Mississippi River and, its activities, and the land surrounding it - rolling hills, bluffs, and rich farmland. It's a heritage in the history we pass along in our traditional reading of Mark Twain's books. Sunrise Orchards has a rich heritage in the land itself. Our orchard is situated on rich farmland amongst green rolling hills that make Wisconsin stand apart from other areas known for apple growing.
Our Apple Orchard and growing a variety of apples has been a family tradition - now 4 generations for over 75 years. Quality is a standard we take seriously and that's why we submit ourselves to USDA oversight as assurance of safety and quality to your family - from our family.
Follow the pathways written about by Mark Twain, take in the sights, sounds and abundance of the Mississippi River Valley. It's an adventure no matter the season. But then take a short detour inland to Gays Mills where we're located. You will find a few treats for your taste buds - the World famous Honeycrisp apple and our freshly made Apple Cider Doughnuts. Mark Twain wasn't able to enjoy them in his time - but you can today!
