_The Orchard Nearest the Heart of Indianapolis since 1925! Celebrating 89 years of serving the Greater Indianapolis Area!
Established in 1925 by George and Edith Adrian and currently in its 3rd generation of family ownership, Adrian Orchards is still the "Orchard nearest the Heart of Indianapolis" and home to the Guinness Record Holder for "World's Fastest Apple Picker" George J. Adrian. Currently owned and operated by George J. & Monika Adrian, Adrian Orchards is still providing the Crossroads of America with the finest apples, peaches, cider and more for 86 years and counting!
And did you know
Adrian Orchards is home to the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest apple picker?.... It’s true! George J. Adrian picked 365 ½ bushels (15,351.5 lbs) of apples in 8 hours on Sept. 23, 1980. His record still stands today.
This week we add 3 new items to entice your appetite, MONARK apples, red, tart, good eating and cooking. Our own "humongolicious" Blackberries are huge and luscious. And our own HONEY SELECT sweet corn aka "killer corn" It will blow you away how good and sweet it is. By far our favorite variety worth waiting all year for. You'll want more before you finish what you have. Great to freeze, too!
Hope to see you soon...take care...stay cool!
PS: We also have freestone peaches, plums, cukes, green beans, tomatoes, etc.
We now have Yellow Freestone Carolina Peaches, Indiana Red and Black Raspberries, IN Blueberries, IN Queen Anne Cherries, IN Earli Gold Plums (oh my, super yummy), and Red Seedless Southern Indiana Watermelon.
A true summer feast!! We hope to have IN Cantaloupe this afternoon. We have fresh green beans, tomatoes, cukes, zukes, pickles, and, of course, sweet corn.
With all the rain we've had, we hope you'll understand if we can't get into the fields. 12 inches in a week! We've talked to other growers in the same "boat" Maybe we can have an "orchard trail" by canoe if this keeps up.
Hope to see you soon...take care...stay cool and DRY!!!
PS: I say the Rain God should go on vacation...maybe to California...I'll book the hotel.
Hi Everyone,ARE YA READY? we are!

The winter was long and hard, spring was wet and cool, May was dry, June was really wet for us, sound familiar? Farmers are never happy with the weather, are they? Despite all those situations, we are open again for our 90th year, praise be!!!! I don't feel a day over 85.
