Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
 
With the warmer spring and summer our apple crop is sizing nicely and the apples are ripe and ready for picking!
 
We've opened for u-pick earlier than usual due to the warmer weather.  The u-pick price for apples is 85¢ per pound for all varieties.
 
Our hours are Sunday - Friday from 8:00 am - dusk...we are always closed on Saturday.  Wednesdays we do run errands so call before coming to check on our schedule.
 
We are able to accomodate some field trips to the orchard and have had preschool, kindergarden, home school, and senior center groups.  Call to make arrangements and to coordinate your field trip options and times with other groups.
 
The  Orchard Store is open with the usual supply of apple butter, pumpkin butter, and fruit salsa. 
 
We have our picnic tables out and you are welcome to bring lunch or supper to have in the orchard.
 
Be sure to dress for the weather forcast and closed shoes are recommended.  Bring a box or basket to carry your apples home. 
 
We always look forward to apple season and  hope that this year makes up for our short season last year!
 
We hope to see you in this harvest season!
 
 Carol & Burton Briggs

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, pies, apple dumplings, baked apples, and crisps.  All three are a good eating apple depending on your preference.
