 Sand Flats Orchard


 Sand Flats Orchard is a family owned and operated farm. Sand Flats has planted  4,000 trees, which includes more than 10 different varieties. As their trees grew so did their customer base and their requests. Shortly after their first apple sale they began to have their own apples pressed into cider. Sand Flats customers always enjoy their unpasteurized and pasteurized cider. In the fall of 2014 the Sand Flats bakery opened. “Where there is cider, there should be cider donuts” they were told and Cider Donuts they have! There is nothing like a cool glass of cider and a warm cider donut. Sand Flats also makes apple pies, pumpkin pies, fudge, and cookies. Their store features many local products including, maple syrup, honey, candles, cheese, and more!
