Send Apples by mail with an Apple Gift Pack from Soons Orchards!
Give yourself or someone special a gift of apples and a whole lot more, if you like.
Our gift packs are perfect for everyone, whether it’s friends and family or important business associates and clients*.
Our gift packs begin with specially-selected extra fancy apples (3 3/8" +/- 1/4"), which are shined by hand and carefully packed into a shock-absorbing foam “case.” This special packing protects your apples so they arrive as perfect as when they were packed. Even better, our packs cost much less than those fancy catalogs!
We can also include a card for the occasion with your message.
We've shipped apples all over the country with excellent results using UPS (please note, due to their state regulations, we can't ship to California or Arizona).
Shipping for the 2016 season begins Oct 15 ; prices below do not include shipping, which depends on the UPS zone of the recipient's address (as an example, ground shipping to FL for a single is about $10-12.) Order early to be sure we can meet your desired delivery dates. We reserve the right to delay shipping if the weather is too hot or too cold. SHIPPING rates increase during the once-a-week pack months, after X-Mas.
*For large orders (over 15 packs) please call us directly at 845-374-5471 M-F 9 to 2 ideally.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many apples are in a pack?
A single pack is 16 apples, a double is 32, and a triple is 48.
How do I place an order?
You can order from our website online, or you can stop by the Soons store and place an order in person.
When can I expect my order to arrive?
Depending on where we're shipping to, 1 to 5 days from time of shipping (not time of order). When orders ship depends on demand and weather; please do not assume that if you call today your order will ship tomorrow! For certain orders, to the West Coast for example, you may want to ship UPS air for an additional charge. Also, for many destinations, including Florida, we typically ship only on Monday and Tuesday, to avoid a weekend stay anywhere (apples don't like warm *or* freezing temperatures).
Can you ship to California?
Sorry, we aren't able to ship to California or Arizona. California doesn't want any other states' produce coming into their state. So they make it pretty impossible to do so. If the law changes, we will post an update here.
What varieties can I get in my pack?
We offer several choices, as well as a choice for a mixed pack. Apples that taste great and ship well are:
Idared: a tangy, crisp apple good for eating and all baking uses.
Crispin: a big yellow/green apple with a sweet, juicy taste, which also cooks well.
Empire: a favorite for eating and baking, Empires combine the best of McIntosh and Red Delicious varieties into one apple.
Winesap: a tangy and juicy multi-purpose apple with great texture.
Red & Golden Delicious: the classic sweet eating apples, the way they were meant to be.
Premium Apples: Macoun, Fuji, Braeburn: these have specific short seasons so be sure to order early.
Can I get other goodies in my pack?
Sure, we offer an assortment of tasty treats to go with your apple pack (remember though, that means fewer apples in a pack). From jams and honey, to cheese and Scotty's cakes.
When can I send a gift pack?
To ensure our gift packs are the tastiest they can be, Soons ships only between early October through January 31. It is often too cold after that, plus supplies have dwindled, so after that, shipments are available on a weather-contingent basis (please call us (845-374-5471).
And is there any the fine print I am missing?
We can't ship to APO, FPO, Canada, Puerto Rico, international addresses or PO Boxes. Weather and other emergencies can delay shipments. If your gift recipient is unhappy, or receives a pack that was damaged in shipping, please contact us immediately.
