The Origin of Our Orchard
Tanners Orchard has officially been in business for fifty-plus years, but we weren’t always the family attraction so many love and know us as now. Several decades ago, the farm started as a small apple orchard located in Walde, Switzerland. This was where a man named Rudolph Tanner ran his family’s apple orchard until 1906, when he set off for the “new world.” After arriving in Deer Creek, Illinois, he and his wife started a new orchard. Together the two raised eleven children, one of which eventually took over the orchard and later moved it to its current location in Speer, Illinois. Today, Richard and Marilyn Tanner and their two children run the orchard and remain increasingly optimistic about the farm’s future.
