Apple Bin Bakery

When you visit Tanners Orchard, the one-of-a-kind aroma of our Apple Bin Bakery will be sure to draw you in! That’s where you’ll find fresh baked goodies all season long, like our famous apple cider donuts and homemade fudge along with fresh baked pies and breads. During the week, you can also enjoy a homemade lunch on the farm as well. Our menu includes sandwiches, wraps, soups and salads so you’re sure to find something you’ll love!

Apple Cider Donuts – Cider donuts are what we’re known for! You can smell them when you come in the door. Have one or two with coffee in the morning, then take home a dozen or ½ dozen. They freeze well, and taste great heated up slightly.

Caramel Apples - Our caramel apples are made with an old German caramel recipe given to us in 1975. We cook the caramel for 45 minutes to create a velvety texture. Then, each apple is hand dipped into the warm caramel and rolled in crushed nuts. We also have delicious plain caramel apples. Last year, we made almost 51,000 caramel apples! Try one on your next visit!

Homemade Fudge - Next door to the bakery is our Fudge Kitchen. Stop by for a sample and choose from 10 – 12 varieties of fudge. We make our own fudge right there in the Fudge Kitchen. It’s one thing you can’t resist!
