On the way up to Arnold or on the way out, be sure to stop by the Red Apple to pickup cider, donuts, cider donuts and other great treats.
The Red Apple is located on the historic Darby Farm, which dates back to the 1890s. While the Darby family added a bakery on site much later, the Red Apple has been a pillar in Murphys since at least the 1930s, when it started selling doughnuts and pies made from fresh apples grown on the surrounding orchard.
It’s one of those special places that has kept the donut-making tradition alive using fresh local ingredients and recipes passed down from several generations.
You can’t help but overstuff your bag and think of all your besties when you stop in to this historic roadside landmark.
