How To Find Munchkey Apples
Munchkey Apples is located about 30 minutes southwest of Madison. Take Hwy 18/151, exit 65 to Hwy 78 South. Drive south to Daleyville to Co A. Left on Drammen Valley Rd. Coming from the opposite direction it is off of Hwy 39, between Hollandale and New Glarus. The farm is 15 minutes from New Glarus.
We are a family run apple orchard with close to 9,000 trees. We planted our first trees in 2011 to do something as a family that would benefit the area. We work hard to provide quality products made the right way.
Munchkey Apples offers pick-your-own and pre-picked apples, caramel apples, fresh cider, apple pie and cider dough-nuts, along with their own farm raised beef, Brix hard cider, wine and other items.
