Located just 45 miles west of Minneapolis, Carlson’s Orchard Bakery and Restaurant has been providing great food and family entertainment since 1992 when Joe and Colleen Carlson decided to take the best of their experiences around the Northwest apple industry and transplant them to the local family farm in Winsted Minnesota.
Soon word leaked out that the value and quality offered at the Orchard was worth the trip. Whether it’s a slice of fresh apple pie, a tasty sandwich, a hot bowl of delicious soup, a wide selection of apples – picked and u-pick – or just a walk through the orchard on a beautiful Minnesota fall day, Carlson’s Orchard Bakery and Restaurant is one stop you will quickly learn is one so many have in included on the fall calendar.
With the uncertainty surrounding near term restaurant openings, and an even greater uncertainty over the fall outlook, Carlson’s Orchard, Bakery & Restaurant has decided to suspend it’s Restaurant and Retail operations for the 2020 season. The health and well being of our guests and employees is our highest priority. Assuring so involves difficult choices, and we believe this suspension to be in the best interest of all.
We will continue to be active in 2020 in the Wholesale Apple and Bakery products, and our Pie Fundraising efforts, remaining hopeful that this difficult time will ease and that we can resume operations in 2021. Until then, be safe, and thank you for your past support.
Joe and Colleen Carlson
