About Brand Farms

Brand Farms is a small family farm. Originally purchased by Anton and Marie Brand, German immigrants, and has been passed down through four generations. Currently, Aaron Brand is the fourth generation who farms with his father, John. His 89 year old grandfather, Richard, still has a daily presence on the farm.

When Aaron graduated from college he choose to expand the farm, not by increasing the dairy herd, but by choosing to produce products they've never had before. He began with a few hens for their eggs and slowly expanded to 2000 that he has now. At the same time, he heard about a defunct apple orchard whose owner was looking to lease it. He also planted a few apple trees on the farm building site, which has expanded over the years to the current 20 acres and 7,000 trees. Most of the trees are Minnesota varieties, apples that were developed here in Minnesota.

We have made some changes over the years and have added U-Pick apples and pumpkins, along with hayrides, school tours, apple cider donuts, apple cider slush, food trucks, dozens of unique photo opportunities, and much more to our offerings at our quaint, small, on farm Farm Store for the Fall season. We strive to provide a very unique experience for all our customers and give back a small piece of the family farm life to our local community in education and hands-on learning through school tours. We hope to see you in the Fall where you can create memories, because memories last a lifetime!

Hay Rides and U-Pick Apples!

Hay Rides and U-pick apple events are available only on weekends from 11 am to 5 pm. For information on a hay ride or to Pick your own apples go here.
