Van Lin Orchards

A second-generation owner of Van Lin orchards since 1991, Rick Van Lin jokes he was born into the apple business. His father purchased a dairy farm on the same rolling hills in beautiful La Crescent, WI and planted the original apple trees in 1961.

Today the orchards produce more than 15 different varieties of apples from Gala and Haralson to new premium varieties including local favorite Riverbelle and ten planted acres of premium winter variety Pazazz.
