  1. Fresh-Baked Donuts

@nomnivorenycBaked fresh each morning, White House Fruit Farm donuts are a must-try sweet treat any time of year, but especially during the fall. Head to the back of the market and you’ll find cases overflowing with delicious donut varieties. During September and October, make sure to try their seasonal flavors like apple cinnamon, maple iced, pumpkin cinnamon and pumpkin iced. Pro tip: If you’ve never tried a White House donut before, do not leave without grabbing at least one of their signature blueberry donuts – you can thank us later.


  1. @cass175Homemade Apple Cider

With just one step into the market, you’ll be sure to find bins and bins of apples grown and harvested right on the farm. After you choose a bag or two of your favorites (view a full list of apple varieties here), make sure to also pick up homemade White House apple cider. Sweet and refreshing, White House’s cider comes available in single-serve bottles as well as half-gallon and gallon containers.


  1. Warm Baked Goods

While White House donuts might get most of the attention, the market’s other seasonal baked goods are just as remarkable. Here are a few fall treats prepared daily in the White House bakery:

  • Apple Fritter Bread: farm-grown apples and cinnamon baked into crisp bread
  • Apple Crisp: farm-grown apples baked with a cinnamon-oatmeal mix
  • Apple Crisp Bars: apple crisp filling on a shortbread cookie crust
  • Apple Dumplings: single-serve dessert topped with warm cinnamon sauce
  • Pumpkin Logs: spiced pumpkin bread rolled with a sweet cream cheese filling


  1. Cozé Coffee

Situated on White House Fruit Farm’s property, Cozé Coffee Bar serves up warm, flavorful coffees and teas throughout the fall and winter. Sip on seasonal drinks, like their pumpkin spice latte, while you’re on the farm or purchase a bag of beans to enjoy back at home.


  1. @championfoodreviewBaker’s Golden Flavored Milks

Flavored milks produced by Baker’s Golden Dairy LLC are a hidden gem sold by White House Fruit Farm. Peruse the coolers at White House and you’ll find these single-serve bottles featuring unique flavors like butter pecan, cookies & cream and cherry cheesecake. The milk itself is produced from the only on-farm bottling plant in nearby Columbiana County and is not homogenized, making it naturally healthier for your body than regular milk. Pro tip: Pair a bottle of this milk with a White House donut or two for the perfect afternoon sweet snack.
