Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
 
The apple season is starting to wind down!  Sunday, October 29 looks like it could be our last day.  Will update after the week end on what hours we will be open.
 
The cold nights has sweetened the apples, fortunately we haven't had any hard freeze as yet so what is on the trees are still good for eating, baking, and canning.
 
A five-year project to have local apple cider to sell has finally paid off! Williams Fruit Ranch, in Emmett, had a mobile juicing wagon come from Montana and was able to press apples for cider on Monday, October 16.  We are excited to have gallons and half-gallons for sale here at Candy Apple Orchard. 
 
Our hours are Sunday through Fridays  from 9:30 am - 5:30 pm; we are closed on Saturdays. Sunday, October 29 looks like it will be our last regular scheduled day.   
 
If you wish to come at a later time later than 5:30 pm, call ahead and we can make special arrangements.
 
Come welcome fall with a visit to our orchard.  We have orchard buckets that you can use for picking, but be sure to bring containers to carry your havest home.

We are hoping you will plan to join us before the season is over!

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 85 cents per pound.
