King Orchards is the place for fresh fruit, canned fruit, dried cherries, and jellies. The area is gorgeous and well worth a trip.

I bought a huge bag of their seconds of apples, all different species and it made the best apple sauce. I can't wait to get some more next year and I will be getting even more.
