Browning Orchard was an important part of the Fleming County community for nearly 100 years. The property, originally purchased in 1899 by E.P. Browning, was used to grow peaches. In the mid-1920s, Francis P. 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 from near and far and the Annual Browning Orchard Apple Festival was a highlight of the season.
