Hinegardner's Other Produce

We have more than just apples!

Other Fruits

We sell many of the different kinds of our produce at Fareway stores in Marshalltown, Tama-Toledo, and Grinnell along with HyVee in Marshalltown. 


StawberriesStrawberries are a great addition to our orchard and for many years we have raised "Honeyeye" strawberries.  We have 2 acres of delicious strawberries usually ready for picking around June 6th.

First of all we completely cover the field with corn stalks. This keeps the plants a little warmer under the snow. Later we remove the stalks and put them into paths to create a mud free path for our pickers. The berries are in rows about 3 feet wide. We have the fields divided into several sections. Berries are all pre-picked. 

Pre-picked berries are sold at $35.00 a flat.

We plan to have berries at our store outlet and farmers markets at this time. 

After production is complete the plants are fertilized, hand weeded and watered and prepared for next year. We usually keep a field for 3 production years.

Pears(Stark Delicious)
