The Dell Rapids Fruit Club

The Fruit ClubThe Dell Rapids Fruit Club

Every month, we will bring new, fresh fruit to Dell Rapids straight from the orchard. So, no middle man called the grocery store! Because of this, we can keep costs low! Everybody likes that!

***Georgia Peaches will be available on Sunday, July 20th, at Quarry Rock Church from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., and there are extras!  10 pounds for $15 or 25 pounds for $35.00.  There will also be peach cobbler mix, raw almonds, walnuts and pecans for sale, $10/pound.  Those items are first come first serve.***

How It Works

  • There is no membership required to enjoy the fresh fruit we bring you!  And you do not have to commit to buying every month.  You choose what fruit you want.
  • To place an order for our available farm fresh fruit, please fill out the order form located at http://www.thefruitclub.net/shop/
