Mapleside's Apple House is a real farm market featuring fresh homegrown produce in season and a variety of delicious groceries and candies. In the Apple House you can pick up a peck of apples that have been grown right here on the farm - fresh, crisp, and juicy.
Current apples being harvested are McIntosh, Jonathon, Golden Delicious, Melrose, Cortland, Empire, and Gala. Apples this year are slightly smaller in size, but are sweeter due to the drought! We specialize in growing the Melrose apple – the official apple of the state of Ohio. The Melrose is a cross between Red Delicious and Jonathon and is excellent for both cooking and eating.
Tip: Store apples at home in a plastic bag with a sprinkle of water once a week to keep crisp.
Fresh pressed apple cider is also made daily with no preservatives. We use 5 different varieties of apples to make our cider. Our special blend is TOP SECRET, so make sure you get some while you’re here!
You'll also find:
• Apple butter, jams, jellies, and specialty food items.
• Our own homemade Apple Butter Barbecue Sauce – it's great on ribs, chicken, hamburgers and for dipping!
• Fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
In the fall you’ll find tons of corn stalks, straw bales, gourds, and fall decorations. You can even pick-your-own pumpkins! We also offer beautiful fruit gift baskets and apple boxes that can be shipped anywhere in the country.
