Historic Orchard & Event Venue
Big Canyon Acres offers over 48 acres of unique event settings in Idaho’s scenic Clearwater River Canyon.
With 48 acres, you can find the perfect spot for your event. Spectacular scenery combined with the professional and courteous event team allows you and your guests to truly enjoy your special day.
We make your vision a reality.
We welcome any type of gathering! Weddings, festivals, parties, reunions, retreats, celebrations of life…
We are proud pickers of
apples, blackberries, pears, plums, cherries, grapes, raspberries, rose-hips, walnuts, hazelnuts & guitars!
Some areas of the 10+ acre historic orchard were originally planted with fruit and nut trees prior to 1900. With 12+ apple varieties, we believe that the orchard was a cider orchard. We even got a visit from the famous Lost Apple crew and many of the apples went back for testing.
You can find our fruit, nuts, and more at the Orofino Farmers Market & our Farm Stand opening this summer.
Humans learn best by doing!

In 2018, the Jacobson’s bought the orchard and immediately went to work bringing the fruit-bearing trees back into full production. Clean-up was started and the meadow and forest grounds slowly started to take shape into a park-like backdrop.
