Tradition and History

Hundreds upon thousands of families have walked through our market doors over the past century. We pride ourselves on making a welcoming and inviting space for everyone. 

Starting with the first 20 acres purchased by A.C. Hainlen in 1915, Hainlen Orchard has been bringing fresh and delicious fruit to those around the state of Indiana and beyond.

in 2023, Len Hainlen (4th generation) made the difficult decision to retire and found new owners willing to pick up the torch and continue to tradition and history.
