Malta, Illinois is home to this unique "agritainment" destination that offers everything from a petting zoo to campsites. In an interview with SpartTV Junior, the McArtor family explain how the orchard was started by the Johnson family before they purchased it. The orchard's name comes from combining the two names and even grows a variety of apple with the same name. Jon Walter led SpartanTV Junior's Southeast Elementary students to create this story with support of the DeKalb County History Center.
