Turner Farm and Apple Orchard
829 West Main Street, Buena Vista, Colorado
The Historic Turner Farm was purchased by Buena Vista Heritage in order to restore the old apple farm to a "living museum" of the early 1900 vintage.
Work on the grounds has been completed. Restoration work on the historic buildings is underway, funded by private donations and grants from the Colorado State Historic Fund. The farm features about 50 apple trees and five buildings: the two-story farm house, the "mother-in-law cabin," the homestead cabin, the garage/workshop and the barn/tack room.
On the second Saturday in September from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Buena Vista Heritage hosts Apple Fest with tours of the farm, apple pie contests, demonstrations of historic trades and old-time entertainment.
