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!!
to see you back next year for another refreshing fall apple season!
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
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!
