Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ...
Our regular Harvest Season
is over, however, there are still some Rome apples on the trees for picking. Romes are a good cooking apple
and make great applesauce, apple butter, apple crisp and apple pie!
Call in advance to arrange a time when you can come out and pick. Picking times can be arranged
most weekdays and possibly on Sunday. We are not available on Saturday.
Just a reminder to dress for the weather and to wear closed in shoes, the fallen apples do attract
bees. Also bring a container to carry your havest home; boxes, bags, or
baskets sized to hold the amount that you want to pick without getting too heavy.
We have orchard buckets that you can pick
into and fruit pickers (sticks with a wire basket) to help reach the apples higher on the tree.
We have enjoyed having guests out to share the season and its blessings.

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 75 cents per pound.

Williams Fruit Ranch is scheduling one more pressing of apple cider around the end of October. William Fruit
Ranch and Candy Apple Orchard will have local pressed apple cider available even after the
fruit picking is done for the season. Candy Apple Orchard still has a limited supple of apple butter, fruit
salsa, jams, and an assortment of apple related items for those interested. We have take and bake apple pies (while
supple lasts)--until I can make more!
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.
look forward to seeing you in soon!
