Since September 1999, Rowley's Red Barn in Santaquin, Utah has been the home of fresh fruit, Country Spoon products, and an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Our mission is to provide customers with an on-the-farm experience through pick-your-own, tours of the farm, by providing fresh, local fruit, and homemade ice cream.
In 2013, Rowley’s Red Barn opened their second outlet in Southern Utah called the Dixie outlet. All of the same great products, fresh fruit, Red Barn made ice cream and friendly staff can be found there.
From our orchard to your table
Bringing the best fresh fruit to your table begins long before harvest time…
It starts when the trees are planted in our high Utah mountain valleys. This area provides rich soil, crisp mountain water, and close proximity to sunlight, all of which help to maintain healthy, vigorous trees.
The winter months are used to prune the trees to make sure that the maximum amount of fruit will have access to sunlight in subsequent months. Giving fruit sufficient sunlight light gives the fruit good color and lots of flavor.
Springtime is blossom time. This is the season when bees roam the orchards and pollinate the flowers. Spring also brings fluctuating temperatures and weather that but the tender fruit buds at risk of freezing. There are many sleepless nights spent lighting heaters and turning on wind machines trying to ensure that the fruit buds don’t freeze.
Summer is the season when temperatures rise and our mountain deserts begin to need water. Because water is such a scarce resource we do everything we can by way of monitoring and adjusting water flows to conserve and use every drop to the benefit of the trees. Cherry harvest begins in the middle of summer and kicks off a long harvest season as the various crops begin to ripen.
Fall is our favorite time of year because our coolers are full of freshly harvested fruit. This harvest season begins with peach picking. The various varieties of peaches begin to ripen toward the end of August and continue through September. Our apples begin to ripen in September with the Gala variety being the first picked. Subsequent varieties picked through the following months ending with the Fuji variety in late October.
We love the countless hours of dedicated hard work that enable us to bring excellent, fresh fruit directly from our orchards to your table. Come in and enjoy the fruits of our harvest.
