Autumn at Monroe's Orchard, is the perfect place to bring the family, and Make a Memory!

Looking forward to seeing you.



Congratulations to Annie Borah!!

Annie had the Grand Champion Pie at the Geauga County Fair in 2012, which brought $3,000.00! You know where Annie got her apples...yes at Monroe's Orchard. Thanks Annie. You're not only talented, but beautiful on the outside and inside!  We are proud of you!


We have PYO pumpkins from our patch or from the many bins of pre-picked.  Take advise from the handsome young men on this page, Monroe's Orchard is a fun place to be. 

We begin picking pumpkins the last Saturday of September, which is our first Apple Harvest Festival.  There are many sizes and shapes to choose from, in the bins or patch.

Have a blessed Autumn.  Spend some time Making a Memory, like Luke of Macedonia who is pictured picking out a pumpkin that is just right!


The pictures on this page were taken at our farm.  (Directly above) Hank and Phillip of Ravenna enjoying the apples and face painting on the Portage County Heritage Tour, 9/28/08, and to the right above, Laura, one of our face painters, is turning Joe into a panda.  (At right) Our bin hauler and tractor are pictured after apples have been brought in from the orchard ready to be washed and sorted.  (To the left) Ella is one of our best raspberry pickers, and she is showing one of her finds. (Below in "About our Farm Items") Daniel and his mother, Kelly Cartwright are enjoying the face painting at the Apple Harvest Festival, a picture of our barn built in 1863, and our Angela Mangeri, local artist, and amazing face painter.

About Our Farm Items
Our fruits are grown right here on the property.  To help you see this for yourself first-hand, we open the fields up to you during the various seasons and allow you to pick your own strawberries, pumpkins, and apples. There is no limit on how much you can pick, we just charge by the pound. During strawberry season you can bring your own containers or you can purchase ours. During the appropriate season, you are also able to purchase fresh cider and maple syrup in many different sizes. If you are unable to make it to the farm, we are glad to ship any mailable items to you anywhere in the country. Contact us today to learn about what fruits are in season and how you can place an order.

Contact us in Hiram, Ohio, for fruit, crafts, and gifts from the farm.
