The 2014 season is underway!

The 2014 harvest will begin soon! We expect to begin harvest about a week or so after Labor Day. We will update here and our on our Facebook page as the season progresses. We are looking forward to seeing you again this year!

We would like to expand our fundraiser program this year. We can help your group raise funds by selling our locally grown, picked fresh, apples this fall. Please contact us for more information and pricing.

Follow us on our Facebook page at McWilliams Apple Orchard.


We Encourage You to Pick!

McWilliams Apple Orchard is a small, family orchard near Maxwell, IA. We have four different varieties of apples: Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Chieftain, and Haralson. See our Varieties of Apples page for information on each type of apple.

If you are looking for a quiet, Iowa, country apple orchard where you can relax and pick your own apples, this is the place for you. We don't have any other fancy entertainment, but we are simple, friendly, and best of all local.

Check out where to buy our apples in Iowa or contact us to set up a time to come to the orchard.

We also have apple wood for smoking. It is sold in custom-sized chunks for $0.50/pound. Apple wood is available year round, and can be picked up at the orchard or delivered to a location on the north side of Des Moines.
