Prey's Fruit Barn opened its doors in 1979 with a few bins of home-grown apples and pears. The fruitstand's humble beginnings eventually led to what is today one of the finest fruitstands in Washington. Prey's sells their own home-grown pears and apples along with the fresh fruits grown by local farmers.


In 1975, Antje and Rudolf Prey, Sr. immigrated to the U.S. with three of their four children. Previously, Rudolf (Rudy) had visited the Wenatchee Valley with his brother-in-law, who was considering buying land here. Rudy fell in love with it. He told his family, "This is where I want to live." They returned home to Germany where they soon after sold their farm. Rudy returned in order to buy the land they now own, and was able to harvest the existing crop that fall. His wife and children joined him in September.


Once they opened, they began to realize the demand for high quality, tree-fresh fruit, and the fruitstand began to grow.


In 1985, the Fruitbarn and grounds were renovated to include a large picnic area, restrooms, parking lot, and a 100 ft. flag pole that proudly bears a 28 x 36 foot American flag.


In 1996, Rudolf and Antje turned over the 130 acre orchard and fruitstand to their son, Rudy, Jr. They continue to work at the fruitstand assisting new and returning customers.
