MSP: Apple Orchard that MAKES pies

Hi all,

Apple season is almost here, and I love love love a good apple pie. Last year around this time I was on the lookout for an apple orchard within driving distance of the Twin Cities. We wound up going to one (which I will not name) which left me *very* disappointed with their apple pie. Rather than being freshly made on the orchard, it was pre-made and frozen at some other locale in Minnesota, and had many artificial ingredients. But the worst part is that it actually was not even very good! I threw it out after one slice. :(

So this year I have a very specific request. I'm looking for an apple orchard that makes their own pies. Bonus points if it is NOT over-spiced. I tend to prefer pies where you can taste the apple flavor, and are *not* overloaded with cinnamon or, gasp, nutmeg. Should be simple, right?

Frankly the best apple pie I've had since moving to MN 5 years ago has been the Lunds haralson pie. Not that I'm complaining -- it's a great pie. But it seems that with all the orchards around, there should be an uber-pie out there.


(btw, yes, I've tried Betty's pies.)
