Love Creek Orchards
All Natural Foods and Specialties from the Apple Capital of Texas.
Love Creek Orchards became pioneers of the Texas Apple Industry when Baxter and Carol Adams planted their first experimental apple orchards in 1981. Little did they know that their experiment would not only produce such wonderful sweet apples, but would also start a new industry for the state of Texas.
Baxter and Carol expanded their operation in 1988 when they opened The Cider Mill and Country Store in downtown Medina. At the Cider Mill, Love Creek lovingly produces over fifty different products made from sweet Texas apples. Their apple butters, jams and jellies, baked goods and specialty items have become famous for their homemade goodness and attention to detail. In 2007 Baxter and Carol retired from the Cider Mill and Country Store and sold it to Bryan and Stacie Hutzler. The store name changed to “The Apple Store” simply because that is what all of the locals and tourists called it. Bryan and Stacie have worked hard to maintain the quality of apple goodies produced at the store and continue to sell the apples that Baxter produced in the orchards. Tours of Love Creek Orchards and The Apple Store are offered April through October. The Apple Store is open seven days a week and there is always fresh apple pie baking!
