Our apples aren’t grown to sit on a grocery store shelf — they’re grown for you and your family to enjoy!

Forty years ago, Francis M. Burke, inspired by stories of his grandfather’s orchard, decided to start his own oasis in the Mesilla Valley. Filled with lush, beautiful trees that bore the sweetest, juiciest apples for miles around, people flocked to Burke’s orchard to pick them.

Starting this August, come experience the sun ripened, straight-off-the-branch, nature-sweetened flavor Burke Family Orchard has been providing the Southwest area for 40 years.

The orchard is open from Thursday thru Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to sundown. Clubs & school field trips are also offered by appointment. There's a $3.00 charge per child.[vc_empty_space height="6px"][vc_single_image image="15704"][vc_empty_space height="6px"]
