Apple Annie's Orchard, the family-owned orchard just outside of Wilcox and one of the Valley's favorite spots to pick its own fruit, is branching out -- and it isn't with more Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples hanging from the trees.
The family fun destination has purchased the former Stout's Cider Mill building (just off of exit 340 in Willcox) to open a Apple Annie's Country Store, a retail space open year-round.
With a planned opening in early spring of this year, here's what Apple Annie's fans can expect when they stop by.
In addition to seasonal produce and veggies, Apple Annie's Country Store will offer their famous pies, popular home made Apple Bread, fudge, jarred goodies, and country-style gifts.
Renovations on the new space are starting soon and the store is expected to open in early spring, prior to Apple Annie's Orchard re-opening for their 2013 season on July 1.
