About Sue Blake
After 30 years in the school picture business and with the luxury of early retirement, we almost literally stumbled into the opportunity to purchase this little orchard. Chris grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois and Sue grew up in Burnsville, MN. We met at the University of Minnesota. After 30 years of marriage, this is our first attempt at farming.
Sue Blake purchased this House in 2016

Terrific Family Getaway Spot in New Ulm!
Charming spot that is incredibly spacious and very well-equipped. We spent the weekend here over (a very cold!) Oktoberfest. Had the weather been better we might have stayed too long at the brewery and missed out on all of the coziness that comes with this place. Lots of room for us as an extended family to spread out - everyone had their own bedroom (comfy beds) and bathroom. Sue was very welcoming and quick to offer that anything in the kitchen was fair-game....including the coring attachment on the Kitchen-Aid mixer....hello apple crisp! She was also quick to let us know when we booked that the house is a few miles from town & fall festivities, very thoughtful to ensure we weren't disappointed when we arrived. Even though there is not uber in the area, rest assured we had no trouble getting around once we tapped into the local rideshare ops, even on Oktoberfest weekend! It's a great place, and we hope to visit again soon!
What a wonderful gem!
What a wonderful gem! The property was spacious enough for all 12. The MASSIVE dining table was perfect for boisterous family meals. Sue and Chris have thought of everything. We will definitely come back.
High School Classmates Get-Together
There are 7 of us who graduated together 50 years ago and still get together every couple of years. A-Peeling Acres Orchard was wonderful! Sue & Chris were so nice and very easy to work with. The property is gorgeous, the house is beautiful and had plenty of room for all of our needs ....beds, bathrooms (with 7 women, the 4 bathrooms were great) The kitchen had everything we needed and the table is beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was too cold for us to use the pool. We were disappointed, because it looked very inviting.
We all highly recommend A-Peeling Acres Orchard for a memorable getaway! Thanks, Sue & Chris!!!
Exceeded our expectations!
We had a wonderful stay at the A-Peeling Acres Orchard. There was plenty of room for all 13 of our extended family. We loved the large table where we could all eat together. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The apples were delicious.
We enjoyed the location and the raspberries.
We enjoyed the house the pool and the beautiful scencery.
A wonderful time!
This was a wonderful piece of family history as my grandfather designed and built it—and my dad was raised here. My young children loved it! The pool, and a short drive to fun things in New Ulm like shops, outstanding parks, and the swim pond at Flandrau! It was a delightful time! Chris and Sue are wonderful people!
