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 old barn is stuffed with crates of fresh apples (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!

cookie"Ma's Kitchen" has 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 3 layer Apple Walnut Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
In November you might find some surprises, because that's when we practice with new recipes and use all of you for our guinea pigs! (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!)

Homemade Pies
We will have a special freezer this year, stuffed with your choice of our homemade unbaked or pre-baked apple pies that you can serve anytime you want! 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!

Read all about our November 2013 Homemade Pies, prices, orders & pick-up dates on The Buzzz! Yummm!

Fresh Home-Made DonutsGoodie Lovers Alert!
We will be making our iced donut varieties only until 4:00 PM thru Sept and Oct and until 3:30 PM in November.

If you will be arriving in the later part of the day, or you want a BUNCH of our yummy donuts and baked goodies-it's good to call ahead and the Grannies will have them ready for you!

We have "Bob" and "Tootie", our trusty donut robots, and they 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!) "Tootie" is on the small-ish side, but she tries to keep up with "Bob".

pieWe make pies while you are sleeping, and we usually have our Yummy Homemade Apple Pies frozen (baked and un-baked) in the Cute Little Red Freezer in the Big Barn. Unless we sell out! Gasp!
So if you want to eat it right away, ordering your pie ahead is the way to go!

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.
