Can you believe it? You don't even have to drive to an orchard to get fresh apples anymore! You can just buy one of our Apple Boxes, packed with homegrown, juicy, healthy apples. Kauffman Orchards is a family-owned orchard in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Our apples are picked fresh from our orchard and only the finest are selected to be carefully hand-packed into our Apple Gift Boxes. This Apple Box is completely foam-packed; each individual apple has soft foam tightly surrounding it to ensure protection during shipping. Cortland is an excellent all-around apple prized for its mellow texture, "stay-white-longer" flesh, and red-colored applesauce. Cortland originated in New York State as a cross between McIntosh and Ben Davis over a century ago and its popularity continues unabated, and for good reason. This Apple Box contains premium, Nutrient-Dense, non-GMO, non-waxed Cortland apples, and each apple has soft, high-density foam surrounding it to ensure protection during shipping. The 8-count box holds approximately 2.5-3 pounds of fresh apples; the 16-count box contains approximately 5-6 pounds; the 48-count box contains approximately 15-18 pounds. We carefully pack each apple box with the best quality apples that were picked by hand in our orchard. Refrigerate your apples upon arrival. Please Note: Due to California state agriculture regulations, we may not ship fruit to California. If an order is placed with the shipping address in California, we will cancel the order.
