Call for Recipes

christmas kiss cookies

It’s that time again – we want to compile a new cookbook.  This round we would like to collect recipes from our customers of classic, go-to recipes.  I want the recipes that you like to make when you have people over, you’re asked to bring a dish to pass, or a special dessert to someone’s house.  It doesn’t have to included apples but it is a bonus if it does.  Let’s make this a cookbook full of recipes that folks will be able to easily make and that taste good! If you have a memory, funny story, or a reason it’s your favorite recipe I’d love to included some of these antidotes as well!

Please email your recipe and stories to:  orchardlifefun@gmail.com and I’ll start to create a compilation that we will hopefully be able to release in Fall of 2019. 

Please spread the word!  Let’s make this a great community cookbook full of “Classic Recipes from the Customers of Lapacek’s Orchard.”

please don’t squeeze my apples

This special orchard shirt came to be simply as a way to help educate folks that apples bruise very easily.  The best way to not have a bruised apples is to not squeeze it, not drop it and treat it with gently care.  This is why all of our apples are picked by hand and handled as carefully as possible.please dont squeeze

I sold these tshirts at the shop for a few years … there are still a few there.  I believe we have a bunch of adult larges (it may be medium) and then kids’ sizes.  I just had to snap a picture of this lovely customer that came to visit the shop sporting her very own Lapacek’s Orchard “please don’t squeeze my apples” tshirt!

Apple Cider and Fireball

Sometimes when it’s a bit slow in the store we just have to try out a new fun beverage!  Check out Diane and me mixing our own unpasteurized, unpreserved apple cider with Fireball!

WE concluded that approximately 8oz of cider mixed with a shot and a half of fireball whiskey is the perfect combination!

A Bushel and a Peck

Are you planning on processing some apples?  Perhaps making some applesauce to can or freeze?  Prepping pies to last you until next season?  Or does your family just eat A LOT of apples? apples in a bushel We offer special bushel pricing at Lapacek’s Orchard.  If you call ahead to order your bushel you can save $3/bushel! 

Call ahead to order your bushel and save 608-635-4780

What is a bushel?  Well – it’s a volume measurement.  We fill the bushel box as much as we possibly can without damaging the apples and that’s what you get.  It ways approximately 40 lbs.  One bushel of apples makes approximately 18 quarts of applesauce or 10 quarts of apple butter or 6 cups of dried apples, or 16 apple pies.

We also sell apples by the peck (approximately 10lbs), 1/2 peck (approximately 5lbs) and 1/4 pecks (approximately 2.5lbs).
