About the Company
The Jacobson Family…
The first apple trees were planted on the shore of Pine Tree Lake in 1904. That orchard would one day be Pine Tree Orchard for Art Jacobson, a city boy from St. Paul, who dreamed of growing apples and living on the land.
In 1950, Art and his wife, Dickey, moved out to the orchard and eventually purchased it in 1958. They settled down to make growing apples the center of their lives and the lives of their children.
Today, all six adult children are actively involved in growing and marketing apples and strawberries. Each family member has his or her own special interest and now there are even grandchildren taking part in the operation.
