Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
 
Time has flown!!  We are now closed for the 2021 season!  We appreciate all the guests that came and picked apples and especially the ones who came back and wanted more because they enjoyed the apples so much!!  
 
We hope to see you back next year for another refreshing fall apple season! 
 
While we have closed, Williams Fruit Ranch remains open; although they are closed on Mondays.  As of our last conversation, Jackie Williams says she still has a number of apple varieties available for u-pick including: Cameos, Johnathans, Red & Golden Delicious, Romes, and Fujis.  Williams Fruit Ranch is our source of apple cider and they plan to press again on November 8. They are located just a mile west of Candy Apple Orchard at 2455 W. South Slope Rd. Call 208-284-5730 for an update on availability.
 
Special thanks to all our friends and family who helped to make this year a success, we could not have done it without your help!  We are 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 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 orchard.  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 2021.  We always enjoy sharing orchard information with school groups and look forward to seeing you again next this year.
 
Candy Apple Orchard is also making Reisinger Honey Available to our customers who have an interest in local honey. 
 
We have replaced our supply of apple butter, pumpkin butter, and  fruit salsas; variety of salsas is limited this year due to Dutch Kettle's limited accessaccess to glass jars. 
 
   
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 Starting September 26, 2021!
