About Us

Carlson’s Island View Orchard, home of Door County Wildwood Market and Anna’s Garden…located in the old “migrant picker’s shack”

Mark, Mary Pat, and daughter Anna welcome you to Carlson’s Island View Orchard and gardens – all here on the family farm that has been in the Carlson family since 1846 – two years before Wisconsin became a state.

O ur little bit of Door County…about 27 acres with a view of the Sister Islands is conveniently located just one half mile north of Sister Bay, WI, right at the intersection of Highway 42 and Wildwood Road.

We are a traditional small operation with a variety of local fruits and produce. Of course our largest production is our cherry orchard with Montmorency tart cherries, sweet cherries and our latest addition Ballaton cherries. Our family has harvested cherries since the first trees were planted by John C. Carlson in 1915. Over the years we have expanded our fruit production to include plums, raspberries, and strawberries.

Pick-Your-Own cherries are available in season, which usually runs from mid July to early August, but Mother Nature rules – so call to confirm picking dates. We can be reached at 920-421-0995 or 920-421-0996.

Much of the local produce available in our farm market is grown in the fields that surround our “little” farm market…all are grown locally in Door County.

We aren’t the biggest, but we have a good selection of local produce, fruits, and specialty food processed by local entrepreneurs.

Our peonies gardens in late May and early June are amazing. You can cut your own or choose from the pre-cuts in our market. Our dried peonies are a favorite that are available year round.

Selecting the perfect fall pumpkin is a tradition for many who make a stop at Door County Wildwood Market. Sizes range from the wee cute one to the ones that are truly ugly, and of course the traditional beautiful orange ones that signal the beginning of fall – one of our favorite seasons in Door County.

Our latest addition is a “hoop” house that this season will be used to grow some of our over 500 tomato plants.

Please feel free to stop in! Check out the building, chat a while, take pictures or just ask for directions and information about the area. We’d love to see you.
