How to get to Gravert's:
Gravert's is on "The Great River Road" which follows the Mississippi River north to Dubuque and into Wisconsin. It is the first orchard coming from the south on Hwy. 52.
From Davenport: Travel 61 to Maquoketa, take the second eastward ramp into town and turn right on Platt, go straight through town, travel 26 miles out of Maquoketa on Hwy. 64 until you see the Jackson County Welcome Center ( it looks like a school house), turn left on Hwy. 52 north and go north 7 miles. (Two different, shorter ways are possible through Clinton or Charlotte. There are a few turns, so you might want your GPS to guide you if you take those routes.)
From Savannah, IL: There is a bridge crossing the Mississippi located on the north side of town off Hwy. 84. The bridge road is very scenic and will take you into the town of Sabula. Turn right onto Sycamore at the gas station in Sabula, (there's only one), and cross the peninsula causeway (you're on Hwy. 64 now), turn right onto Hwy. 52 right after the causeway, and travel 7 miles north.
From Dubuque: The turn to Hwy. 52 in located south of Dubuque on Hwy, 61, turn left at the intersection (you will see McDonald's on your right), travel 24 miles south going straight through St. Donatus and Bellevue. After Bellevue, continue for 16 more miles. Gravert's is an 8th
of mile on the right after you see a closed cafe at the top
of a hill.
Note: The drive-way is hidden because of the hills. We put out signs and flags, and the mailbox has an apple painted on it. Look for our lane at the bottom of a hill.
Also note that your GPS will take to the gravel 550th Avenue. Our lane is directly on Hwy. 52, and is not connected to 550th Ave.
Our lane coming from the north on Hwy. 52. Look for the apple on the mailbox.
