Orchard Foods

Kauffman's orchard products are sold all over Pennsylvania Dutch Country, in Lancaster County and beyond, by numerous vendors in the Mid-Atlantic states.

When Kauffman’s was founded, healthy and nutritious food wasn’t as much of a priority as it is now, but with cultural factors and changes like world wars, women working, and the entry of TV, an explosion happened. Suddenly, frozen dinners, McDonald’s, and Little Debbie’s became immensely popular along with expanding waistlines, and it took everyone a while to fully realize what was going on. Finally, people began to tune into health, and here at Kauffman’s, we made the choice to not only continue growing food responsibly and sustainably, but also healthfully, and this is a special priority in the foods we process right here at our farm and market.

Award Winning Apple Cider

Award Winning Homemade Sweet Apple Cider

This is the premier apple cider in the Mid-Atlantic region! Kauffman's 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.

Homemade Apple, 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. We take care to make them "just right." Apple butter can be enjoyed in four tasty variations:

• With Sugar & Spice
• No Sugar, with Spice
• No Sugar, no Spice (Plain)

Besides apple butter, we also make regular and sugar-free variations of Pear Butter and Pumpkin Butter. All of these butters and fruit butter gift packs are available in our farm market and online.
