Our homemade Apple Schnitz (dried apples) is made from fresh apples, air-dried here at our market, with no additives or preservatives whatsoever. It's all-natural, gluten-free, and non-GMO, plus is Kosher- and Pareve-certified. Schnitz is a great tasting, chewy, snack and is a natural for lots of dried apple dish and dessert favorites and certainly that old Pennsylvania Dutch favorite - Schnitz and Knepp! For people who enjoy a great tasting, chewy, all-natural fruit snack, schnitz is wonderful alone or (especially!) with other dried fruits (try this recipe). We dry two wonderful flavors of apple schnitz:

  • (Best Seller) Sweet Apple Schnitz, made from fresh, naturally sweet apples slices, usually slices of the venerable Rome Beauty apple); and,

  • (Best tasting according to most Kauffmans) Tart Apple Schnitz, made from fresh, more tart-tasting apple slices, usually from Idared or Granny Smith apples.


By the way, the word schnitz is a German word that means "piece" or "slice". Fitting, isn't it?
Our apple butters are homemade right here at our orchard with all-natural ingredients and are gluten-free and non-GMO. They are also Kosher- and Pareve-certified. The rich, delicious flavor comes 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 it "just right".

Keith in Georgia wrote us about it:
I'm sure you know this but just wanted to say that Kauffman's Apple Butter is THE best I've ever tasted. LOVE the wholesomeness, texture, and of course the taste that you've perfected -- and I consider myself an apple butter connoisseur so I should know! (have tried dozens of different ones). And my whole family agrees with me! We always buy a large supply when we go on vaca in Madeira Beach, Florida and visit the Amish Ice Cream and Foods store there. But now I just realized I can buy it online too. Anyway, just wanted to express our sincere gratitude for your exceptional family business. All the best to you.

April 2017 Note - The 2016 apple crop in the Mid-Atlantic region was very short compared to some years. The fruit had good quality but there was not much quantity. That reality is reflected in these apple boxes - we will not have homemade or local apples for sale here into the summer like we often do. But take heart, the 2017 harvest is looking good at this point, and the first juicy, tree-ripened apples will be harvested before we know it!


IPM Information

Ahhh, the flavors of an apple orchard! Join the trend of shoppers ordering fruits delivered to their door. These fresh fruit packs are quick 'n easy to order and certainly take less of your time than driving to a big box store somewhere.

These fresh apples are homegrown right here in our Bird-in-Hand apple orchards. Kauffman's homegrown apples have the word Homegrown in the title and are sold while supplies last. We supplement our supplies with apples from other local orchards as necessary. Kauffman's fruit orchards are all managed with the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, which produces healthier soil and better tasting fruit. Click the orange IPM button above for more information about this effort.
Here at Kauffman's, we buy large quantities of a w-i-d-e variety of bulk products, mostly from local companies such as Dutch Valley Food Distributors and C. O. Nolt. We then package these bulk foods into much smaller, random sizes and pass the savings on to you! And (Helpful Hint coming up), if you like bulk foods, will you ever enjoy DiscoverBulk.com!

Please note: Our bulk food products are sold by weight, not volume, and are packaged in random weight packages. You will probably not receive the exact amount of an individual bulk food item that you order - however, it will be very close. We adjust the sales order based on the actual weight of the items in your package (but the total charge is never higher than you paid for at checkout). We pay strict attention to packing website orders accurately. If you have any questions about ordering random weight items, please call our Website Department at 717-768-7112, or email us.

This complete line of homestyle Jams, Jellies, and Spreads is made using quality fruit ingredients. Customers in our Bird-in-Hand market often comment on the delicious real-fruit flavor. Many flavors have sugar-free versions too - called spreads. "Jam" indicates a jelly with little bits of actual fruit in it; "Jelly" is what most folks think of when they hear the words "jam" or "jelly" - a more strained type of fruit topping; and "Spread" is a jam or jelly with no added sugar. Click the orange buttons here to view our homemade fruit butters, which are low-sugar alternatives to jams and jellies.
