Browning Orchard Festival recap



As part of Family Weekend, Morehead State University held its third annual Browning Orchard Festival Sunday, Sept. 22.

Participants enjoyed an afternoon of hayrides, horse-back rides, food, family-friendly activities and musical entertainment by the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music.

The orchard is located at (10955 Wallingford Road) Wallingford in Fleming County.

Browning Orchard was an important part of the Fleming County community for nearly 100 years. The orchard property, originally purchased in 1899 by E.P. Browning, was used to grow peaches. In the mid-1920s Francis P. (Mr. Frank) Browning, E.P.'s son, converted the farmland to a commercial orchard that predominately produced apples.

Passing through three generations, Browning Orchard Apples were known across central and northeastern Kentucky. Fall harvest drew visitors both near and far.

In 2008, the Brownings donated the orchard to Morehead State University, continuing the family's commitment to helping create more sustainable communities in the region.

Chief photographer Tim Holbrook recapped the day’s event in a photo gallery.
