Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
We apologize if you have tried unsuccessfully to reach our website.  There has been a technical problem that has now been resolved, and hopfully doesn't reoccur!
We are now in to July and the apples are not so tiny anymore.  So far, it looks like a good crop.  We have had our "thinner" take some of the excess apples off so that the trees remain healthy and the apples grow a bit bigger.  Keeping the watering going to stay ahead of the hot weather.
The mowing, yard work, and moving irrigation pipe has started but we have limited the garden this year.  The raspberry and blackberry vines are growing and blossoming, we just need to make sure they get enough water!

It won't be long and it will be time to order the butters, salsas, and jams for the 2024 season!!  I've picked up several cases of jelly jars to be ready for processing when fruit is available here!
We appreciate all our friends and family who support our orchard and we are looking forward to making new friends this year!  Hope to see you here in October!!
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 u-pick 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 2024.  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!
