Picking time in the St. Croix Valley

Email

Frank Femling was doing carpentry work when came home one day in 1989 and asked his wife, Cindy, if she would like to own an apple orchard. She said she would and the couple bought a 119-acre orchard in Denmark Township that became Afton Apple.

Their daughter, Sarah, 23, said she's seen pictures of the orchard when her parents first bought it. It was run down and needed a lot of work, she said.
