Paul Curtis and his wife Joyce planted their first trees in 1977. Soon, this couple had a growing business on their hands. Their vision of following God’s will for their lives led Paul to retire from Parkland College and go into the apple business full-time. The young couple worked hard, raised children Debbie, Greg & Chris, and grew the orchard from 700 trees in ‘77 to around 5000 trees today. Debbie’s husband Randy Graham joined the business in ‘83. Now he & Debbie are co-owners and their children Aaron, Rachel, Carissa, Cameron & Julie contribute to Curtis Orchard’s success. Along the way, God’s providence carried the orchard through both good and trying times. His protective hand kept the farm safe from tree-ravaging fire-blight bacteria, the extreme drought of 1988, and most recently – a late frost in 2007, which destroyed almost all apple & peach crops in Illinois. Amazingly, the Curtis crop that year not just survived, but thrived. Pick apples & pumpkins, feed goats, celebrate birthdays, and much more. Fresh country air and plenty of memories are waiting for you at Curtis Orchard.
