Mulberry Orchard is a family farm in Shelbyville run by Matt and Amanda Gajdzik. It is located at 1330 Mulberry Pike. They have a market with farm fresh produce such as squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and juicy peaches in the summer. They grow 15 varieties of peaches and 17 varieties of apples! They hope to have u-pick in the future when the trees are more mature. They also sell local honey, eggs, preserves, jellies, freezer chicken and pork, beef jerky, and unique gifts. 

photo IMG_2071_zpsdpmxou4q.jpgMulberry has a covered picnic area where you can enjoy some of the yummy food they have to offer. They sell an array of lunch items and delicious treats like apple cider doughnuts and fried apple/peach pies! The picnic tables are conveniently located near a children's play area that includes a huge slide, swings, large tractor tires, a corn bus, tunnels and lots of room to run. It's a great place to have lunch, relax, and let the kids be kids! You can pay for a family pass that is good for the entire season. 

In the Fall, visitors can enjoy hayrides to the pumpkin patch, corn mazes, and special events.

This family farm in Shelbyville is also the perfect place for an educational school trip or group tour! The fee per student is quite low and a great way to show kids first-hand what happens on a farm.
