Buddy Hall started Applecreek Orchards in the late 1970’s to provide the highest quality fruits and vegetables to the public. The orchard, located in Scott County, Kentucky, and mainly produced U-pick strawberries and various varieties of apples; however they also produced blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches and many other vegetables.
During the time on the orchard, Buddy, wanted to try his hand at making preserves and fruit butters and he turned to the nearby Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill for inspiration and Applecreek Farms Specialty Foods was born. His own exhaustive experimentation with Kentucky Bourbon produced a unique and delicious line of home style preserves and fruit butters. He also worked with a Nestle food specialist to develop a line of caramel and chocolate fudge dessert sauces.
Unfortunately, Buddy passed away shortly after retiring in 2009. However, his son Chip decided to carry on the Applecreek Orchards tradition with the specialty foods product line that his dad started. Chip was joined by his long-time friends, Mike and Tammy Leal, as they continue to provide high quality products, prepared and packaged by hand in small batches, ensuring their freshness and flavor.
So, try a sample of Applecreek Specialty Food’s fruit butters, preserves, marinade, barbeque sauces, salsas, chutney, caramel and chocolate dessert sauces, and you will agree that Buddy’s insistence on quality still works!
