Orchard Experts – Believe it or not, you don't even have to drive to an orchard to get fresh apples anymore! You can just buy one of our premium Apple Boxes, packed with our homegrown, juicy Jonagold apples – an apple with excellent dessert and baking qualities. Kauffman Orchards is a family-owned small business in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, established back in 1915 with a vision to provide the local community with fresh, nutritious fruit that enhances quality of life for the American consumer. Today, the orchard still follows that goal. Managed by the 4th and 5th generations of Kauffmans, Kauffman Orchards grows Nutrient-Dense fruit that has enhanced vitamins, minerals, and flavor.
Snacking and Baking – Jonagold features a mellow texture and a great, mostly sweet, slightly spritely taste. It’s commonly used as a sweet variety for no-sugar-added applesauce; for fresh snacking including lunch boxes and with caramel apple dip; for all baking purposes, including apple crisp and apple cobbler; and for fried apples, made with a little butter and a touch of cinnamon. This Apple Box contains premium, Nutrient-Dense, non-GMO, non-waxed Jonagold apples, and each apple has soft, high-density foam surrounding it to ensure protection during shipping. The 8ct box holds approximately 2.5-3 lb. of fresh apples; the 16ct box, approximately 5-6 lb.; and the 48ct box, approximately 15-18 lb. The 48ct box is about 3/5 bushel.
Shipping Information – We pack your Apple Box with fresh apples that are highest quality, and we use shipping methods that provide a quick 2-3 day delivery to most of the lower 48 United States. However, we have no control over distance to your address, nor over handling and temperature during transit. Since apples sometimes ripen quickly in hot temperatures during transit, we suggest that you consider choosing 2-Day or Next-Day delivery during checkout. Refrigerate your apples upon arrival.
