Royal Oak Farm Orchard grows over 30 varieties of apples that begin their harvesting season in early to Mid-August and continue into November. For our Royal Oak Farm Orchard apple gift packs, we have chosen some of our favorite varieties, all great for eating out of hand, baking in pies, cooking for sauce or adding to salads, just for you! If the item of your choice is unavailable at the time of shipping or does not meet our high standards for quality, we may need to substitute an item of equal or greater value. We ship our gift pack products via Flat Rate USPS Priority Mail within the continental United States, except for California, Arizona and Texas. California, Arizona and Texas do not allow fruit to be shipped into the state.
