A Wholesome and Delicious Gift.

The Apple Gift Box is the crown jewel of our Hillbilly Holiday™ line.  You can send boxes to your loved ones and order some for yourself.  Each box of farm-bred bon-bons is the surest way to share your local food enthusiasm with friends and family, no matter where they live.  A lovely gift of Finger Lakes food.  Send them a piece of The ‘Creek.  ORDER HERE.


What’s Inside?

In your Heirloom Harvest Apple Box, you’ll get 14 antique and exotic apples that you won’t find in the grocery stores.  Each box comes with a printed insert that describes each fruit, and you can include a gift message.  Selections from the Indian Creek orchards include Ashmead’s Kernel, Black Oxford, Calville Blanc, Roxbury Russet, Claygate Pearmain, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Esopus Spitzenburg, and more.  ORDER ONLINE.


Pricing and Delivery.

Each Heirloom Harvest Apple Box is priced at just $45.  Add $10 per box for shipping.  Note that the web site will add an additional $5 per box for shipping to CA, AZ, WA, OR, ID, NV, UT.  Please remember that shipping to these western states requires a few more days in transit.  See the holiday ordering deadlines below.   ORDER ONLINE.


How to Order.

You can order Apple Boxes with your credit card through Cummins Nursery (same people as Indian Creek Farm):


For delivery by Christmas, place your orders by Thursday, December 15.  But note:  We will probably sell out before then, so place your orders now to reserve your boxes.

If you are sending an Apple Box as a gift and would like us to include your name or a brief message, please type your message in the “Instructions to us about your order” field during checkout.

If you are shipping Apple Boxes to multiple addresses, place a separate order for each address.

We will choose a shipping method depending on the time and location so that your apples do not freeze in transit.  The boxes are specially lined with foam to protect the apples from impact, and a cardboard sleeve will preserve the white gift box.  No wrapping to do — just hand the box to your friends!  The apples are refrigerated until the point of transit, but not during.  Please refrigerate them upon receipt if any of them are to be stored for more than 24 hours prior to consumption.


Why Were These Orchard Rows Closed?

We grow over 70 varieties for public picking, but we roped off certain rows in the orchards to reserve these special apples for your Apple Gift Boxes.  For some of these antiques and exotics, we have only a single tree!


Just Like Here at the Farm Stand.

We’ve had a great harvest here at Indian Creek Farm.  It will be our pleasure to share some of these amazing fruits with you and your loved ones — as if you were stopping into the farm stand to sample apples here at The ‘Creek.  Order now to share the farm with friends.  A lovely gift of Finger Lakes food.
