Our History


Outhouse Orchards was founded in the late 1800’s by our Great Grandfather as a dairy farm. It was not until the early 1900’s fruit began being farmed as well as continuing with dairy production. Upon his death in 1943 Great Grandfather Outhouse was succeeded by his son A. Purdy Outhouse. At this time the farm expanded to growing peaches, plums and vegetables with the Outhouse sisters making donuts and pies.

In 1963 Purdy took ill leaving his wife Ada to run the farm with family until 1972 when their two sons Wayne and Drew took over daily operations. Present day leaves us with Wayne and his family still operating the orchards hoping to bring that old time farm family atmosphere.
