2013 APPLE SEASON HAS ENDED FOR US!...........GET UPDATED EMAILS FOR NEXT YEAR BY SIGNING UP FOR EMAIL UPDATES BELOW.






LAST YEAR'S APPLE SEASON MARKED THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF CIDER PRESSING AT RB!

This year, 2013, our 21st, is dramatically different. Because of limited supplies of juice fruit, with the result being a limited supply of apples to press for juice, RB Family Orchard was open for just six days this year. Only two pressings were made and by late Saturday afternoon, September 21, we were sold out of this year's cider. Knowing that adequate quantities of cider apples were unavailable to us this year, we opted to close after just two weekends. We are so sorry to disappoint our loyal and devoted clientele that are accustomed to a minimum four week season and the convenience of our being open daily.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN IN 2014





RB FAMILY ORCHARD PROUDLY FEATURES THE FOLLOWING FALL MENU





OUR OWN, PRESSED ON PREMISES, RAW FRESH CIDER! Still made fresh with nothing added.


Our freshly pressed cider announces the advent of fall. Many of our patrons buy a gallon jug to open and share here on the premises. We gladly supply the cups!
THINK AHEAD AND BUY EXTRA TO FREEZE FOR THE HOLIDAYS.
Already frozen is available for purchase.







DRIED APPLE RINGS

This apple treat is made by us nightly during apple season only. Demand always outpaces our ability to supply this popular product, so please accept our apologies if we are sold out at the time of your visit.

We take Tehachapi grown apples, lightly flavor them in a cinnamon/sugar mix, then dehyrate them. The result? A tasty, chewy, tangy snack that pleases more folks than we can supply!





DAILY FRESH BAKED APPLE CRISP

Apple Crisp is baked fresh daily. We offer two sizes, the family size that serves between six and eight, depending on how heavy handed your portions are, and the individual size. Take it home or come and have some here are the orchard.

So many of you have made a fall tradition of returning to us to enjoy our apple crisp with family and friends. The Long Clan meet here at the orchard and bring their own table decorations!






BARB'S NUTTY APPLECAKE--A POPULAR FALL ITEM

All we can say is yum! yum! A very moist and rich cake with apples and walnuts incorporated in the dough. Frosted with cream cheese icing. Look for it in the refrigerated case where the cider is.

To insure your purchase of this item, advance ordering is advised as it is not as readily available as the crisp.





PUMPKIN BREAD


Yes, another little known 'secret' and favorite at the orchard. Available Freshly baked mini loaves of pumpkin bread with walnuts. Moist and delicious.

Buy extra because this pumpkin bread freezes nicely and you'll have something handy to thaw quickly for holiday entertaining.




APPLE BUTTER


If you are not familiar with apple butter, it is a jam type spread that is delicious on toast, bagels or with a peanut butter sandwich! It can also be used as a flavoring in cake icings or fillings, added to fruit dips, or added to sauces when cooking chicken or pork--use your imagination! Perhaps the term 'apple butter' might have derived from the fact that this particular fruit jam spreads like butter.

We offer two sizes--a 14oz. jar and a 28 oz. jar.


Pictured L-R: 14 oz. Apple Butter, Cherry Butter, Pumpkin Butter, Apple Jelly, 28 oz. Apple Butter

The Cherry Butter is another toast topping treat. Mildly but delicously spiced. The same can be said for our Pumpkin Butter. Apple Cinnamon Jelly has a beautiful clear color featuring a pronounced spicy sweet taste.





APPLE SYRUP * APPLE CHIPOTLE SAUCE *

Our lightly flavored Apple Syrup makes for a great change of pace on your pancakes or waffles. It is also a great flavoring to add into sauces for chicken or pork. Try it--you'll like it!




It has been three years since we introduced Apple Chipotle Sauce. Its zesty, zingy, full bodied flavor has made our patron grill afficianados rave! How to use? Ribs, Chicken, Pork, Fish--just a fabulous all-around condiment.
