Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
Our apples have caught up with the season and we are picking Red Delicious and Rome Beauty apples.  The Golden Delicious were not very plentiful this year so as of October 2 they have all been picked.  
Our orchard store is open with a replenished supply of apple butters, pumpkin butter, fruit salsa and jams!  Unfortunately, we are out of APPLE CIDER until the Williams Fruit Ranch does their pressing around October 5 or 6.  I will post when we have more available.  
We have already seen a number of previous customers who wanted to make sure they didn't miss us this year and new customers too!!  We have a limited supply of boxes so if you bring a container to carry your apples home, that would be awesome!!  It is time to check your calendar and plan your trip to the orchard!
We appreciate all our friends and family who continue to provde support and help. We are truely blessed!!

Our orchard has a variety of trees including Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Rome Beauties.  The Golden Delicious have a very good flavor and make a great applesauce and dried apples.  Red Delicious, one of the most famous American varieties, are wonderful in Waldorf Salad. The Rome apples are a firm, slightly tart apple that are great for applesauce, caramel apples, apple pies, apple dumplings, baked apples, and apple crisps.  All three are a good eating apple depending on your preference and are much better picked from the tree than from the grocery store.
All varieties are---- priced at $1.00 per pound.

We have gotten a number of requests from local photograhers wanting to take professional family photos in the orchard duiring either blossom or apple season.  We have found that the structure of our orchard, two rows of trees circling our property, does not provide the dense orchard feel that most are looking for resulting in trespasses onto the neighboring orchards.  But, call me with your interest and I will share with you some options.

 We will plan to open a limited Field Trip schedule again in 2022.  We always enjoy sharing orchard information with school groups and look forward to seeing you again this year.
Candy Apple Orchard is also making Reisinger Honey available to our customers who have an interest in local honey. 
Our goal is to make your visit to our orchard  a family adventure that you will want to repeat every year as some of our guests already do.
We look forward to seeing you again this apple season!
