About Sunrise Orchards

Fun for Kids at Sunrise Orchards

Welcome to Sunrise Orchards, a cherished multi-generation family owned apple orchard nestled in the picturesque bluffs of rural Southwest Wisconsin.  Since 1913, Sunrise Orchards has been a beacon of tradition and quality, offering over 21 varieties of apples, plus legendary apple cider donuts, caramel apples, apple cider, hundreds of specialty foods, a gift shop, a playground and even a dog park, making it a destination for families and friends across generations.   

High above the scenic Kickapoo Valley, our orchards have breathtaking panoramic views of the Driftless region. Spanning 225 acres, Sunrise Orchards produces up to 150,000 bushels of apples annually, showcasing the dedication and passion of three generations of the Teach family.  

Throughout our harvest and apple packing season, we welcome over 130 workers, ensuring that each apple reaches you at the peak of freshness.  While our apples and cider can be found in select grocery stores throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, we invite you to experience the full bounty of Sunrise Orchards by visiting our retail store, conveniently located just above Gays Mills, Wisconsin. 

Sunrise is a full-service orchard and our already picked apples, apple cider and many other products, are available for purchase directly at our orchard in our retail store.  Though we don't offer pick-your-own apples, our orchard is a hub of activity and there are so many reasons to visit Sunrise Orchards.  There's never an admission fee to enter or attend our events.  Whether you're savoring the flavors of fall or creating cherished memories with loved ones, Sunrise Orchards is a place where traditions blossom.

As another autumn season unfolds, we look forward to serving you, your family, and friends once again.  Thank you for making Sunrise Orchards a part of your yearly tradition.
