The Dumas Apple House
Opening Friday, September 2 2016.
3025 W. Wayzata Blvd, Long Lake, MN 55356
"Since 1925, your heirloom apple source"
On opening day, we plan to have Paula Red, Hibernal, Beacon, Erickson, Pioneer, Duchess, Red Free, Red Baron and Wealthy. (Due to the hard freeze we had in May, we don't have a lot of some of these varieties of apples.) Some varieties will not be available this year, including Oriole, Viking, Melba, Mantet, Duchess, Erickson and Charlamoff.
If you have a favorite, make sure to come out to the Apple House sooner than later as we may be out of some of these varieties right away.
We will be closing for the season on Monday, October 31 when remaining apples will be donated to a food pantry.
