Michigan APPLES: A Flavor Worth Waiting For!

From our FARM to your TABLE: We grow seven DELICIOUS varieties ripening throughout the season. Our early, mid and late season apples start with “Gala” and span the season with later varieties like “Northern Spy” and “Golden Delicious”. All our varieties are excellent for eating fresh, salads, desserts, applesauce, homemade apple butter, and perfect for your favorite recipes.


  • GALA: Crisp apple with a mellow sweet taste and aroma, excellent for eating fresh. Cooks well, too. Harvest time: Early September.
  • EMPIRE: Known for their lovely white color and sweetly-tart depth of flavor. Firm texture stores well. Great as a lunch box snack! A delicious fresh eating apple, also good in salads, as caramel apples and for baking. Harvest time: Mid-September to early October.
  • McINTOSH: Lightly tart flavor and ultra-juicy. Great for eating fresh, fruit salads, pies and applesauce, they cook down like a Paula Red. Harvest time: Early September.
  • GOLDEN DELICIOUS: Premier baking apple, pleasantly tart and gingery-smooth sweet flavor. Holds shape well when baked, excellent for pies, sauces and other baked desserts. Great dried OR fresh in salads. Harvest time: Mid-September to early October.
  • RED DELICIOUS: Excellent fresh eating apple with a full-flavored sweet taste. Yellowish flesh and crisp texture. Their deep red color and picture-perfect look makes them a great centerpiece in a fruit bowl. Harvest time: Mid-September to early October.
  • NORTHERN SPY: A classic, hard-to-find, old-fashioned heirloom style apple. Great baking apple, pleasantly tart and sweet, cooks and holds shape well when baked. The Northern Spy easily substitutes for a Granny Smith apple in recipes. Also excellent dried OR fresh in salads. Stores well. Harvest time: Mid-September to early October.
  • HONEY CRISP: Crisp, delicious sweetness, great apple for eating fresh or in salads or with fruit dips. Harvest time: Mid-September.

Autumn’s favorite fruit is great for packing in lunches, snacking with peanut butter; and to add flavor to salads, desserts and even meat dishes. Try some fresh apple slices on your next grilled cheese, add chopped apples to store-bought coleslaw, or brush some halved apples with melted butter on the grill at your next BBQ (then drizzle with honey & dust with cinnamon) for an easy farm-to-table dessert sure to impress guests.
