Best Orchard

Orchards offer more than just tasty apples, they’re places for the whole family to gather and have a fun day out while supporting local. Ferguson's Orchards (6470 Balsam Road, Eau Claire) continued to be a popular spot this fall, slinging tasty treats and good times. The Glass Orchard (130 Deerfield Road, Eau Claire) made many Chippewa Valley residents’ seasons with its produce and hand-blown glass art, and Connell’s Family Orchard (19372 County Hwy. OO, Chippewa Falls) extended its century-plus of family-run business by continuing a long reputation of quality. –Parker Reed
