Life on the orchard is simple and beautiful, and it’s been part of our area for many generations. Wea Creek Orchard desires to “supply Greater Lafayette, IN with fresh, quality, local fruit that you can pick yourself,” and that’s exactly what they do. Come explore this section of our lovely Tippecanoe County and plan to stay a while! About Wea Creek Orchard Wea Creek Orchard is more than an orchard. It offers an opportunity to learn about plants, environment, variety of fruit, canning, and so much more. Here’s some information from the Wea Creek Orchard official website concerning their history and mission: “Wea Creek Orchard is owned and operated by three families who are descended from the pioneers who purchased the farm in 1855. The farm has been owned by our family continuously since that time. We strive to make a visit from your family a happy one, and we promise to make an outing to our farm an experience of learning about farming and reminiscing about farming in times (mostly) gone by. In addition, we would like to be a local source for good quality fruit that you and your family can pick yourself. Watch our fruit trees continue to grow as we add more varieties, and plan to spend time at Wea Creek Orchard. We are excited at the prospect of sharing our farm with you and help you to understand the source of quality, locally grown fruit.” Click here for more information on the farm’s history.
