Apple Castle DonutsApple Castle

At Apple Castle, we are proud to be a family owned and operated farm and farm market. Our family business has provided our community with fresh produce and specialty items for over 150 years! We grow about fifty varieties of apples, along with peaches, nectarines, blueberries, raspberries, sweet corn, plums, cherries, asparagus, rhubarb, winter squash and pumpkins. Each June, we also take pre-orders for ten pound buckets of fresh, pitted sour cherries grown in Michigan.

We make our signature honey wheat and apple spice donuts daily. Our fresh, sweet cider is flash pasteurized, with no preservatives added. A special treat is a glass of cider or cider slush along with your donut.

We carry a large selection of farm market items and specialty products for your enjoyment as well: apple butter, cheese, eggs, milk, jams/jellies (with sugar or no sugar added), local honey, dried fruit, snack mixes, candy, spices and much more! We often have bread, cookies, and pies available that are made fresh by our Amish neighbors.
