AVEnue Orchard is owned and operated by Ron (aka. Ronnie Appleseed) and Shelly Knutson, Matt and Misty Joers, and Ronnie Appleseed’s grandson, Mason.
While working at General Billy Mitchell Air Reserve Station, the base was ordered to close under Base Realignment And Closer (BRAC) act. The decision was made that Ron would retire and the family would return to their hometown in Eau Claire, WI. Shelly planned on finding a job doing assisted living while Ron planned on crafting flag cases. During a visit to Eau Claire, Shelly and Misty joined other family members to go to some thrift sales. Their route took them past a bed and breakfast with a small apple orchard and a wood working shop on 10 acres of land. This gem became their new home and Apple Valley Enterprises, LLC was born.
