|TONY T’s APPLE FARM & KITCHEN began in 2004 and was part of Front Royal’s Harmony Hollow Orchard which dates back to 1911. Our 200+ apple trees qualify as organic because we do not use any pesticides and meet the guidelines established by the Organic Materials Research Institute (OMRI.) Also, our cider production and kitchen operations have been inspected by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. (VDACS)
The apples used in our APPLE DUMPLINGS are not from the Farm since we needed to find a “flavor” that would be consistently available from May through October. We also have our COUNTRY APPLE PIE and our unique SKILLET APPLE PIE which comes in a deep 8″ iron skillet!
Come visit us and taste our flavors at THE FRONT ROYAL FARMERS MARKET at the Gazebo Commons next to the Visitors Center in Front Royal, VA 22630 – Saturdays *, 9-1, AND at the ARCHWOOD GREEN BARNS FARMERS MARKET, I66, Exit #31, on Sundays*, May – October, 10AM-3PM.
((* We are at these Markets only on the 1st & last Saturdays/Sundays of the months.))
We also bake a very moist ORANGE/WALNUT CAKE that comes in a choice of shapes…Star Cake (1 piece), Tray of Teacakes (9 pieces), and our unique Den of Dinosaurs (4 pieces).
Based on several requests we have started to bake two GLUTEN-FREE MINI-CUPCAKE products…DEVIL’S FOOD and LEMON-CHIA. Even those who are not gluten-free rave about them!
We also have SUGAR-FREE CHOCOLATE VOLCANOS! (mini-bundt cupcakess)
And if you like cookies, try our SUE-Z-Q’S CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! (Mothers recipe!)
Our organically grown apples are available at the Farmers Markets as early as July…starting with LODI, then ARKANSAS BLACK, then LIBERTY, then HARMONY GOLD, then SHEEPNOSE and ending with STAYMAN and PINK LADY in September/October. Other flavors are also used in our hand-pressed organic apple cider.
During the BERRY season (June & July) we have wild and organic BLACK CAPS, WINEBERRIES (a red raspberry), and BLACK “THIMBLE” BERRIES.
The FARM also has a two-hive APIARY from which we harvest our very popular natural and raw HARMONY HOLLOW HONEY. usually in mid to late July.
We also have an “old time” APPLE PRESS for our hand-pressed organic and unpasteurized APPLE CIDER.
