Who We Are:

Our apple and cherry processing plant is located in the center of upstate New York's apple country. We have proudly been in the apple processing business for over 50 years and are dedicated to producing only the highest quality products. We know that can only come from our careful selection of the freshest fruits available. An enormous advantage for us and our customers is that most of the fruit required for the apple and cherry products we produce are either grown on our farm or provided to us from many local area growers. This advantage allows us to secure the raw product we need at the best possible price.

What We Do:

We Know Apples


Here at Cahoon Farms, we process fresh and frozen IQF (individually quick frozen) apples. We have the capability to process several sizes of slices and dices to meet your company's needs. A few of the apple varieties we process regularly are: Empire, Cortland, Golden Delicious, Rome, Granny Smith, Ida Red, Crispin, Gala, Greenings, Jonagold and Fuji. We have several other apple varieties available or we can mix varieties to satisfy your ratio requirements. Our finished product is of outstanding quality and fresh delicious flavor. Most all our apple varieties, fresh or frozen, are available year-round.

We know Cherries


Our red tart cherry products are processed at the peak of freshness. Within 12 hours of harvest, our cherries are processed and IQF frozen. This crucial step ensures a top quality product that has a firm texture, thick tender flesh, fresh flavor taste and bright color.

We have the accessibility to package your IQF ordered products in weights and sizes to meet your needs.
The Wolcott Cold Storage facility, located within three (3) miles of our processing plant, has the capability to store up to 30 million pounds of product. Storage is available to store your IQF ordered product until you are ready to have it shipped to your location.


Continuous Improvement:

We believe that through continuous improvement in both customer service and updating our customers of our progress and procedures Cahoon Farms will help build and maintain a strong, long lasting relationship.

Food Safety:

Our company consistently follows strict procedures of GMP (good manufacturing practice) and HACCP (hazard analysis & critical control points) as well as allergen control programs. We are SQF level 3 Certified for processing fruits and vegetables. We are dedicated to producing only the highest quality food products and maintaining strict safety guidelines in our processing facility.
