RB Family Orchard

With regrets, RB Family Orchard has closed and will not open in the fall of 2017

Dear Friends: It is with mixed feelings that Richard and Barbara announce the closing of RB Family Orchard. Since 1992, we have opened every fall to offer you, our customers and friends, our own pressed on premises Tehachapi apple cider. Fresh picked Tehachapi apples, apple butter, apple crisp, dried apple rings and so much more have been available for purchase. As the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end" and so it does here at the orchard beginning Fall 2017. Careful consideration of many factors led to this most diffuict decision. (Thankfully, we are both still in good health so that was not an issue!) Our profound thanks to those who have faithfully patronized us over the years. We are truly going to miss each one you.


Our rural and spacious setting, located just two miles from downtown Tehachapi, is perfectly situated for groups wanting to celebrate a special anniversary, family reunion or small company picnic in a comfortable home style atmosphere. The grounds can accomodate 20 to 125 guests. Three covered areas plus the lawns allow setups for a food station, drink station and music station in addtion to the seating areas. The use of a freezer, commercial refrigerator, and commercial convection oven is included in the rental fee. A popcorn machine is available for an additional charge. Bookings can be made for the months of May thru October. For further information on booking your event, please contact Barbara Tieskoetter at
