Exquisite Vineyard & Orchard Events

our-story

Of this place

Elegance meets Country

Spring rains announce the arrival of each new season. The sun warms the earth and our magnificent orchard & vineyard comes to life to produce a bountiful harvest. The excitement of each season is what inspired us to establish Ashery Lane Farm, a stone’s throw from the Twin Cities and just far enough away to be considered country. This is a place where our hearts bloom and our minds wander back to our youthful days spent on family farms. And so, everything we do at Ashery Lane Farm, from creating an inviting atmosphere, to sharing the bounty of our harvest, expresses the true elegance and unwavering beauty of this place.

Our dream is to allow others to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of our orchard and vineyard while celebrating their cherished events and creating lifetime memories at Ashery Lane Farm

The Orchard

Honeycrisp and SweeTango

Our 20-acre orchard, located on some of Minnesota’s finest soils formed by glaciers 10,000 years ago, is home to our 12,000 apple trees. Being a close neighbor to the University of Minnesota’s Horticulture research center, we share identical climate and growing conditions, allowing us to produce many of the University of Minnesota developed apple varieties, including SweeTango, Honeycrisp, Zestar!, Wealthy, Cortland, and Haralson.

The Vineyard

Our vineyards at Ashery Lane Farm consist of two important varieties introduced by the University of Minnesota grape breeding program. The Frontenac Blanc is the newest member of the Frontenac grape released by the U of M in 1996. This hybrid of French/American grapes is winter hardy and produces a nice white wine similar to Sauvignon Blanc. The Itasca variety is their most recent release. It’s the first, frost cold climate grape with low enough acidity to make an excellent dry white wine, similar to a Pinot Grigio. Our vineyard is planted on an old dairy pasture, providing fertile soils to grow our grapes. While we are currently not making our own wine, all of our grapes are slated to be sold to MN wineries close to our own.
