Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
We are almost to Thanksgiving, my favorite time of the year!  We are finished with the busy apple season and are able to relax and enjoy the Thanksgiving Season.  A good time to reflect and be thankful for all the guests who have become friends in picking our apples.   Most of our trees did get cleared of apples but as the leaves are turning yellow, there are a few apples scattered through that look like ornaments placed to celebrate the coming of winter.
We still have some inventory of jams, jellies, fruit salsas and fruit butters if you want to come by and pick up a few additional jars for the holidays and gifts! Just call and let us know that you are coming.
William's Fruit Ranch has pressed their cider and have made it available in 5-liter bag-in-box, we are keeping that on hand for our customers as well. 
The weather has seemed so mild, I keep thing that the frost and snow is coming soon... just a bit ahead on the calendar!

We appreciate all our friends and family who came out to the orchard this year, it was wonderful to see each of you!
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 2023.  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!
