Plenty of places to pick your perfect pumpkin.
Kauffman Orchards is a family owned fruit farm and market that has proudly served the Lancaster area since 1915. Situated along Old Philadelphia Pike in Bird-in-Hand, offers a cornucopia of local fruits and produce in season, plus ingredients of all kinds for tasty creations ranging from apple crisp to meatloaf. It's not just our high-quality homegrown apples and peaches.... visitors give rave comments about our huge Bulk Foods selection, and the locals are almost addicted to our award-winning, homemade Sweet Apple Cider, which, we're proud to report, has been voted #1 repeatedly in competition with about 20 other entries from 6 states at the Mid-Atlantic Fruit & Vegetable Convention (in 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2016). We also produce a variety of tasty fruit butters, homemade peanut butter, and apple cider donuts. We even have our very own beehive onsite with a wide selection of honey.
For the foodies, we have a deli section featuring Dutch Country-style meats, cheeses, and deli items (like homemade Potato Salad... good stuff!). Come looking to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with friendly employees who themselves are locals and know the culture. You won't want to leave without buying some of our famous apple dumplings, and during the weekends in the summer and fall we fry up our own apple-cider donuts right outside! Plus, on your way to or from our market, you can savor the views of the lush Lancaster farms, and most likely you will need to swing wide to safely pass a horse-n-buggy.
