The Property:

Brant’s Apple Orchard is one of the most scenic spots in Ashtabula County.

Resting on 80 acres of land with over 2,600 apple trees (22 varieties), Asian pears and table grapes,  is located just minutes from several covered bridges, wineries, and Lake Erie.

It is a great place to enjoy nature and learn about apples. Come tour the orchard and see first hand how apples are harvested, sorted, and pressed using a 150-year-old cider press. Apples are handpicked and selectively blended to create the most distinctive award winning apple cider. Apple cider Slushies’ are available as well. The on-site bakery offers freshly hand-made pies, dumplings, donuts, muffins, scones and cookies. The market also offers cookbooks, caramels, jellies, local honey and maple syrup and other gourmet pleasures.
