Cain's Orchard was established by Kevin & Diane Cain in 1976. We were young, enthusiastic and energetic with dreams of embarking upon an agricultural adventure. We were lured to Hixton by the beauty and serenity of the land. The hills and slopes provide a microclimate with important winter protection and air drainage for our fruit. The close proximity of our orchard to I-94, Hwy. 95, and Hwy. 121 would prove to be a favorable location. Our venture and our dreams continue. Come share them with us....
(Future plans include our daughter Carmen & son-in-law Derrick Heard joining us in our operation-the Orchard will be re-energized with their youth, dreams & fresh ideas.)
Cains Orchard has a strong environmental message we wish to share with our customers. Our fruit is grown utilizing sustainable agriculture & incorporates integrated pest management. We recognize the importance of being a conscientious caretaker of the earth, its animals, plants & nature.
Our 3rd day of U-Pick Blueberries will be Saturday July 29th. We will still have the Jersey, Bluecrop, Blueray, Northland, Patriot, Berkley, some Duke & Reka varieties available for picking. The Bluejay are gone for the season. The Patriot while still plentiful are now medium sized instead of as large as they were the 1st 2 pickings. The Elliot variety has not yet begun to ripen.The Blueberry crop will still be quite plentiful this 3rd week. When you are finished picking your berries please consider visiting our neighbors' working dairy farm... the kids (& adults too) will love the calves. Nasonville Fresh Squeaky Cheese Curds will be for sale while supplies last. Their farm is just 2 minutes down the road.

Our blueberries are sold U-Pick only-on Saturdays only. We start @ 7 AM & keep going until the berries are picked out for the day. The U-Pick blueberries are usually available for 5-6 Saturdays. We have 20,000 highbush cultivated blueberry plants so we usually antipate picking for a good share of the day. However the best picking is early. We ask that you bring 5 qt. ice cream buckets for picking although we do provide waxed cardboard flats also. Our price is $1.50 per pound. Our grounds are kept well manicured so any atire is OK for picking as long as you are comforable. Children are welcome. Leashed pets are also welcome.
