Apple Boxes in a Wagon



Ela Orchard is located in Rochester, Wisconsin. We grow many varieties of apples and pears, and we press fresh apple cider.

We sell apples and cider at our apple barn during the fall season and into the winter. You can sample the varieties available and our goats would love to eat any leftover cores!

A Note for Madison / Dane County Farmers Market Customers

We are unable to attend the DCFM market on the square Saturday, Sept 23. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will return next weekend as normal (Saturday, Sept 30) with many great apples.

We are still open for business at the Apple Barn in Rochester and we will be at the Shorewood Farmers Market on Sunday as well.

    • Lodi
    • Macoun
    • Melba
    • Milton
    • Gala

    • Wealthy
    • Duchess
    • Wolf River
  • Pears
    • Parker Pear
    • Asian Pear
    • Note: Moonglow pears ripen later around the beginning of October

Road Construction Update

The road to the orchard (Highway D / Washington Ave.) is under construction, but it is open for driving if you come from the east (through Rochester). When driving through Rochester you will see barricades by the post office, but it is possible (and encouraged) to drive around them.

From the other direction, the road is closed to the west of the orchard, so if you are coming from that direction you may need to follow detour signs and come through Rochester instead.

A Note About Our Driveway

The road construction project rebuilt our driveway in a narrow fashion that we believe is more dangerous than before. We apologize for this and ask all visitors to use extra caution entering and exiting until we are able to remediate the situation.


You can find us at the following markets listed below this week.
