Welcome to the Orchard store!
Come on in! From May to October you can enjoy a variety of activities in our physical store … watch Monarch butterflies and honey bees, play checkers, hide in our playhouse, enjoy a Cheerwine soda while sitting on the loafer’s bench, and, of course, shop. But if you won’t be in the area, or you want to enjoy our delicious jams, jellies, sauces, and dips during the off season, be sure to check out our online store! On-line shopping is fast and easy, and your order will be delivered right to your door.
If you haven’t visited the Orchard you don’t know what you’re missing! The store and music venue have been completely remodeled and there are now dedicated areas for: kids’ activities, history, butterflies, honey bees and books! Our selection of regional books is unmatched in the area. We also have lots of beautiful new pottery, including apple-shaped plates and dipping bowls, flower-patterned plates, salt and pepper shakers, mugs, bowls, and clocks! And, of course, our jarred food section is as popular as ever. We hope you’ll have the opportunity to come visit. All proceeds from your purchases go toward support for the Mission of the Altapass Foundation.
Great place to visit with family. They have the best sweet potato butter and apple butter I’ve tasted in a long time.Michael Rector
You may purchase apples by picking them yourself or ones already packaged in the store. If you choose to pick the in-season apples, purchase a bag at the store and go out the orchard to see the different types of apples and even give them a taste before you choose! We supply picking poles so you can get to ones in the higher branches. Apples are sold by the peck ($10), which is approximately 8 dry quarts, or a half peck ($6).
