Not only does Curran's sell their famous apple donuts during the summer season, but they offer special summer treats you can't get during their regular/Fall season like CHERRY and LEMON donuts!

Ice-cold cider slushies, local honey, apple pies, cherry pies, salsa, and dressings are just a few of the other delicious treats you can also pick up at Curran's this summer while your kids play with the chickens and goats.

Now For The News You Have Really Been Waiting For...
