Apple Cart Fruits
Apple Cart Fruit is owned and operated by Michael Simon. He has operated along the Okanogan River in Tonasket, WA since 1978. Apple Cart is a certified organic orchard featuring multiple varieties of apples, peaches, cherries, and apricots. Among the varieties of cherries offered are Rainier, Bing, and Lapin cherries and well as tart pie cherries. Sweet, juicy apricots and peaches in multiple varieties will follow after the cherries. In the fall several kinds of apples are available such as Honeycrisp, Gala, Cameo, and heirloom varieties such as Arkansas Black and Yellow Newtown Pippin. In 2013 the neighboring River Willow Farm was leased from Norm and Diana Weddle to add to the acreage and varieties of fruit. River Willow and Apple Cart Fruit were two of the founding farms of OPMA. Recently Apple Cart has started producing wonderful dried apricots and began marketing them in 2016. Apple Cart Fruit carefully stewards its land along the river bank and is not only organic but environmentally conscious in its land use.
