There’s a Subscription for That: Orchard-Fresh Apples

There’s a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers. 

If you’re lucky enough to live in an apple-growing region, you may celebrate the arrival of fall by packing up a picnic lunch and heading out to a nearby orchard to pick your own apples. Most of the farms that open up their gates to DIY pickers offer seemingly endless rows of apple trees, and the fruit-filled branches are difficult to resist. (We dare you to go apple picking and not come home with pounds and pounds of fruit!) For adventurous eaters and bakers, it can be fun to explore the side range of varieties available. Some apples, like Gala, Red Delicious, Macintosh, and Fuji, are great for eating. While others like Braeburn, GrannySmith, and Cortland are best for baking. Your local orchard may even offer hybrid varieties or heirlooms you can’t find in the grocery store! Don’t happen to live somewhere with apple orchards nearby? Not to worry. There’s a subscription that will bring orchard-fresh apples to you!

Turkey Knob Growers has been in the apple business since 1918, and they know a thing or two about growing, packing, and shipping apples. The orchards are located in Timberville, VA, and to say the selection is vast… well, it’s a bit of an understatement. Let’s take a look at all the different kinds of apples Turkey Knob grows:

  • Fuji
  • Empire
  • Golden Delicious
  • Honey Crisp
  • Virginia Gold
  • Red Delicious
  • Ginger Gold
  • Gala
  • Granny Smith
  • Rome
  • Stayman
  • Pink Lady
  • York
  • Albemarle Pippin
  • Jonagold
  • Evercrisp

If you’d like to receive a single shipment of apples or send some as a gift, there are options in the online store. You can select the variety you’d like, choose how many apples to receive, and either pick them up at the Turkey Knob headquarters or have them shipped to your door. If you want to receive a shipment of apples every single month, there are subscriptions available. Currently, the shortest available subscription is 3 months long, and the longest is 6. Let’s take a closer look at the Apple of the Month Club.

Turkey Knob Apple of the Month Club Details

  • Subscriptions are customizable. Choose your preferred length, box size, and apple varieties.
  • Pricing starts at $54 for a 3 month subscription with 14 apples per box.
  • Shipping is assessed separately, and depends on the shipment weight and subscription length.
  • Apples ship mid-July through February. (No shipments are sent March-June.)
  • Available apples vary by month.
  • All shipments come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
  • Apples ship nationwide, including Alaska and Hawaii; however, shipping fees vary by zip code.

Live in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley? You can pick up your apples directly from the orchard. Just select “pick up at Turkey Knob Apples” during checkout, and your fruit will be prepared for local pickup.

They had me at Honey Crisp! I love apples, but I hate picking them (because bees).
