The Apple Store & Patio Cafe

The Apple Store is now a well known Texas tourist destination. In 2007 Baxter and Carol began to slowly retire and they sold the Apple Store to Bryan and Stacie Hutzler.  Bryan and Stacie love the store and work hard to continue to offer the same apple experience to everyone that visits.  There work has paid off!  Last year, The Apple Store’s Patio Café was named one of the “Best 40 Small Town Cafes in Texas”  by Texas Monthly Magazine.  This year our Apple Pie received the vote for the “Best Apple Pie inTexas” by Texas Monthly Magazine as well.

Bigtooth Maple Planting Tips

The best time for transplanting is as soon as the plants go dormant—usually early December for Bandera County. The roots grow during the dormant period and when spring comes and growth starts, the plant has a head start. The later in the winter that you plant, the less time that the roots have to grow. In some years we have 100-degree temperatures in March and this is deadly for plants with small feeder root systems.
