The western Wisconsin apple orchard, Circle K Orchard, is situated on 40 rolling acres just 9 miles east of River Falls. The apple orchard specializes in growing select varieties which were especially developed for the upper Midwest such as the Haralson, Regent, Fireside and Honey Crisp. We feature the only on-site cider pasteurizer in a Western Wisconsin apple orchard and it is open for inspection. Our pasteurizing process heats the cider to 160 degrees for 10 seconds which will eliminate any contaminates but does not cook the cider. Therefore our cider retains its natural texture and retains the nutrients. We also provide cider which has not been pasteurized upon request. When visitors come to the Orchard they have the opportunity to observe a commercial packing line which grades to size and packs apples for commercial distribution.
