Schweizer Orchards

Schweizer Orchards has been in continuous business in the Northwest corner of Missouri since the early 1900s when Conrad Schweizer bought a 40 acre farm north of St. Joseph. Steve and Becky Schweizer, along with their sons, Cory and wife Allison, and Nick, now operate the orchards, farm land, market and U-Pick orchard on the southeast corner of St. Joseph. The current orchard was purchased in 1988 and consists of 86 acres. It has U-Pick blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins. Vast varieties of vegetables are grown on the property and are sold locally during the growing season. Many field trips and parties are held at the orchard. In the fall the hayrides to the apple trees and pumpkin patch bring people from near and far. Nestled in the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River, Schweizer Orchards has produced and packed high quality River Bend Apples for over four generations.
