The love for agriculture runs deep here at Helene's Hilltop Orchard. Helene's family established themselves as a dairy farm in 1919, but grew BIG pumpkins even then. My parents, Dave and Helene Pagoria are best described as agricultural visionaries, a couple of city kids who transitioned the small family dairy farm into an apple orchard in 1979. A commercial bakery was added in 1992. As the apples grew, so did their business.
Some could say, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Today the orchard is owned and operated by the next generation, Mark and Olivia Telschow. Our vision has remained the same through all the years: provide our customers with the freshest, best quality fruit, grown with integrity and concern for our land so generations beyond can experience our farm. Over time various aspects of our family farm may have changed, but our passion and dedication to agriculture has remained the same.
We firmly believe that the best food is whats grown closest to you. So make plans to come and visit us soon!
