Knaebe's Mmmunchy Krunchy is a small cozy Mom & Pop apple farm and cider mill nestled in the hills just west of Rogers City, in beautiful Northeastern Lower Michigan.

We have 13 acres and 30 varieties of dwarf & semi-dwarf apple trees. Our eclectic We picks 'em, You bags 'em), fresh unpasteurized cider, honey, local maple syrup, our own spicy apple butter, and a large selection of jams n' jellies and other Michigan and Midwest goodies.

Yayyy! We're on Under The Radar Michigan!

"Ma's Kitchen" will have special treats on special days like "Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding with Yummy Brown Sugar Sauce and Real Whipped Heavy Cream" (it's whole grain - a veritable health food!) Or a thick slab of "Three layer Apple Walnut Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting" or "Upside Down Sticky Pecan Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Stuffing!"
We have some delectables only on certain days, so if you've a hankering for a certain goody, you can give us a call to see what we're cookin' up!

Goodie Lovers Alert!

Homemade Pies: "We Bakes 'em, You Eats 'em!"
Want your pie Baked n' Ready to eat? Please call ahead to order. Just wear one of those cute aprons you found in the General Store, swipe your face with some flour, and nobody has to know you didn’t slave over a hot stove all day!

donut cakeWe will be making our iced donut varieties only until 4:00 PM thru Sept and Oct and until 3:30 PM in November.

"Bob" and "Tootie" are our Infamous Donut Robots! But even that Dynamic Duo can only turn out so many tasty morsels at a time-even though they start before 5am. (Good thing they don't have feet like the rest of us-yow!)
So if you want a bunch of our yummy donuts late in the day, especially Sundays, please call ahead and order, and we’ll have them ready for you! (no standing in line necessary!)

barrel trainSend Dad & the kids outside (with their sticky delicious caramel apples) to visit our small but obnoxious animal farm or play in the kid yard.

Bigger kids and "growed-ups" might like to test their skills at the "Mac 'n' Squasher" - our new apple slingshot!

We've got bakeware, aprons, kitchenwares, candles and gifts too. (We love to bake in the Fall, so we think you'll like our "Biggiemongus" selection of cookycutters!)

We Picks 'em - You Bags 'em! (or why we are not a "U-Pick" farm)
Because Northeast Michigan is not exactly the fruit belt, (heck, we're not even the fruit buckle!) our little trees are pretty spindly. We've been told by a MSU Horticulture "hot-shot" that it's even too cold to grow apples up here! (Hmmm, is that why they taste so gooder?)

So for the health & happiness of our orchard, Pa's mental health and the safety of your family... "Please do not pick the apples or climb the trees".

We're happy to provide you with plenty of fresh-picked and washed samples to Mmmunch on in the 'ol barn.
