McClure's Orchard & Winery is a family-run apple farm located north of Peru, on U.S. Highway 31. Just over twenty years ago, Paige and Jerry went looking for a new adventure. They happened upon an overgrown orchard, trees tall and full of suckers with a lawn unkempt, lonely and detached from its community. Throughout the sixty-acre spread, only one apple grew! Since, we have worked hard to reclaim the Orchard, turning it into a flourishing apple farm and restoring it as a place within the community for everyone to enjoy.
In 2009, we began a new venture at the apple farm... we became a farm winery, producing hard ciders and wines from the fruits and vegetables grown on site. Since then, Jason and his wife, Alison, have continued to expand our offerings. Many of the ciders and wines have become award-winners!
In 2019, we opened a secondary location in Downtown Peru, at the "Toll House" to bring our farm to town. The Toll House offers unique gifts and home decor, a wine tasting bar & some of our orchard favorites!
