Learn More Buy Fruit Online
Full of sun-ripened, fresh-from-the-orchard flavor and grown on the same farm for over 100 years, our "Bird-in-Hand Brand" homegrown fruit is sure to please. With a wide selection of apples, peaches, cherries, plums, and pears in season, there's something for everyone's palate at prices for anyone's purse.
Sweet Apple Cider
This is the premier apple cider in the Mid-Atlantic region! Kauffman's homemade, sweet apple cider was voted 1st place of 20 entries in the cider taste competition at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Fruit & Vegetable Convention (also in 2007, 2010, and 2014!).
Careful, consistent blending of sweet and tart apple varieties is our specialty. The apples are inspected and washed before being ground and squeezed with modern, sanitary equipment. The cider is screened and flash-pasteurized, making a delicious, nutritious, refreshing beverage; then, it's bottled by our state-of-the-art, automated bottling system.
Apple Schnitz (Dried Apples)
Our apple schnitz is made from fresh apples and air-dried with no preservatives. It is a tasty, healthy, all-natural snack, and is well known as an ingredient in PA Dutch specialties like Schnitz & Knepp and Schnitz Pie. Our apple schnitz is available in sweet and tart variations by using different varieties of apples; it can be purchased at our market, various outlets in the Mid-Atlantic regions (click here for vendors), and online.
Shop Apple Butter
Our apple butter is enjoying more and more "star status" as customers up and down the East Coast try it and are delighted by it. Apple Butter is called "butter" because it's soft and spread-able like soft butter; but, there is no dairy in it. We take care to make it "just right." Apple butter can be enjoyed in four tasty flavors:
• Original (With Added Sugar)
• No Granulated Sugar Added
• Plain (Nothing Added)
• Sweetened With Natural Honey
Besides apple butter, we also make regular and sugar-free variations of peach, pear, and pumpkin butter. All of these butters and fruit butter gift packs are available in our farm market and online.
Peach, Pear, & Pumpkin Butters
Our fruit butters get their flavor from our old-fashioned process of cooking the fruit in fruit juices, retaining the natural sugars and fiber of the fruit. Besides apple butter, we also make regular and sugar-free variations of peach, pear, and pumpkin butter. All of these butters and fruit butter gift packs are available in our farm market and online.
Ready for a mouth-watering treat? How about a warm, fresh apple cider donut made on the weekends during the summer and fall (June-October) at the front of our farm market? We use a cake donut mix and include our award-winning apple cider in the recipe!

Doesn't the thought of growing your own fruit sound interesting... and delicious?

Do you have questions about who the Amish and Mennonites are and what they believe? Perhaps a title on the Lantern Books rack could help you find answers to questions like these. You'll find a variety of children's, missionary, inspirational, and doctrinal books, many written by Amish and Mennonite authors.
Jams, Jellies, & Spreads
These jams are produced by a Mennonite family business that we've been friends with for decades. This jam family includes no-granulated-sugar-added variations in a collection of about 4 dozen options. The delicious flavors include interesting & unusual jams - like gooseberry, guava, & peach jalapeno - that we think you'll agree are worth every penny of their price!
