Last month we highlighted the frost gamble fruit growers take each spring. The results are in, and we rolled Boxcars! The early April frost didn’t wipe out the crop.

2021 Crop Update: The Good News and The Bad News

Good News – The Peach and Apple crops look good and plentiful. We expect the first peaches to be ready around the third week in June. The first apples are on target for early July.
Bad News – The strawberry field did not fare well over the winter/spring and we will NOT be opening the patch for UPick this year. Our Sweet Cherry crop took a big hit during the freezing temperatures in early April, and we do not expect to have many (if any) cherries available.

And so it begins...pruning time. It’s time to give our trees their annual “haircuts”. These Apple trees are getting slimmed down so we can drive between the rows. (Can you tell which is the finished part?) We’ll be pruning something from now until March/April. #ourworkisneverdone

Our Story

Engelbrecht’s focuses on growing and selling peaches and apples. We sell our tree-ripened fruit at local farmer's markets and at our farm location. U-Pick peaches, apples and pumpkins are available within season.

Evansville-area natives have fond memories of the original Engelbrecht’s location on Christ Road and the orchard in Newburgh. As the population in the area grew, these locations became more and more urban. Eventually, the two locations ceased production and were developed into housing. The current orchard location on Old Petersburg Road near Highway 57 is away from the hustle and bustle of the city - a more rural setting, for sure. Here, we grow a variety of fruit, including peaches, apples, nectarines, pumpkins, and cherries.

The majority of the orchard is planted with more than 30 varieties of peaches. Why so many? Growing a variety of peaches allows us to have the ideal peach for snacking, and another that lends best to pies and canning. The variety also accommodates the differences from one season to another, and extends our production growing season from mid-June to Labor Day - bringing available fruit to more families through the entire growing season.

We also grow many varieties of apples, including Lodi, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Fuji, Gala, and more. Each have their best qualities, and you may choose several to be your favorites. Our typical​ apple season extends from July through October.

Thank You for a great day. We picked a few of your Jonathon Apples........delicious!!
When you don't have a chance to eat all the apples you bought from your favorite hometown orchard before they start to get too soft, you make apple pie ice cream. Mmmmm.... 😋
I found a good use for empty fruit bags! Basil, anyone?
How much longer do you expect until strawberries are ready??
What variety of apples will you have this weekend for u-pick?
Do you have u-pick still available on the peaches?
Thank you for this gorgeous day ❤️🍎
When do you expect peaches to be ready? Will this spring's weather impact the expected harvest? Thanks.
A beautiful Monday at the Orchard! The peaches are loving this warm weather.
Happy Monday!
My daughter and I came with a group Wednesday during 3-5 pm, my daughter was so disappointed. She had been looking forward to attending this with our homeschool group so she could have fun and be with other kids, she was so bored. My daughter said we should have stayed home if I wanted to get lessons about apples, and that was the only activity. I paid 5 dollars for each of us and you let her pick 2 apples, there was no.maze, no ride , no drinks, no pumpkins except what I would have had to buy, like I said I paid 10 for 2 of us and drove 39 miles for nothing, another couple came from Washington, Indiana, so they came even farther, and it was not like there was a bunch of the school kids, maybe 10 total from the school. If doing an answer and question session is an activity, then I can say we will not return for any reason. We was in the hot sun for an hour and a half, most of it was answering questions. You could have gave a cup of cider, a small pumpkin, and had better activities for the kids to do especially if you know it's coming from a school and there are kids. I know another place I will take my child to and believe me they have all kinds of things for kids to do, and it is very kid and family oriented. Sad very sad, and the fact I got charged 10 dollars for 2 whole apples, I have never seen are place so cheap like this and we paid for this, I won't be making this mistake again and I cam assure you my child will not either, way to ruin her day.
Do you still have Mutzu's?
