The Big Apple is a small family run bake shop and produce stand atop "Upper Apple Hill." Through nineteen years, Mike and Rose Stuhlsatz have operated this home orchard and built a bakeshop with products second to none. This small bakery has become famous for Rose's specialties that include; "Grandma's Biscotti," "Apple Butter Squares," and "Cheddar Cheese Crust Apple Pie". She is also noted for excellent apple butter, herb vinegars, apple chutney, and occasional batches of green tomato relish and such preserves as her garden might have in abundance. Old favorites include five pound crumb top and regular apple pie, Apple Hill cake, apple strudel, apple raisin, and chocolate chip cookies. Rose has also introduced ethnic favorites such as Biscotti from her grandmother's recipe. The handmade biscotti sells in local gourmet and espresso shops and is wholesaled year round. Besides growing all the favorite apples, the Big Apple is perhaps the last of the small gourmet cider producers. Mike blends at least four varieties for the best marriage of tart crispness and tang. The varieties and blend ratios are posted for the cider aficionados.
