We pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients to create handmade pastries, pies, cookies, donuts, and bread. We use time-tested recipes and traditional baking methods to create delicious treats that are bursting with flavor. From our famous apple pies to our frosted molasses cookies, our bakery will have you savoring the flavors and reminiscing about your grandma's kitchen. Our bakery is available year-round; this is how:
During the months of January, February, March, and April, we offer our customers the opportunity to shop our online store and pick up their orders the 2nd Saturday of each month during our Drive-Thru that runs 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. It's the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favorite items and try our monthly specials. With all the snow and ice, we make it so convenient you don't even get out of your car! Click the button below to visit our online store and view our menu.
During the months of May, June, July, and August, you will find us, along with our bakery, at the Saturday morning Wausau Farmer's Market located on River Drive in Wausau, WI. Our menu is carefully curated to feature the seasonality of Wisconsin Agriculture. Whether you're in the mood for something savory, sweet, or somewhere in between, we've got you covered. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see exactly what we will be offering on Saturday mornings! Click the button below to view our Traditional Farmers Market Menu.
Head on over; we are open Tuesday through Sunday!
As soon as you open your car door, you will be greeted with the aroma of apples and cinnamon coming from the bakery located inside our farm store. The best selection will always be found early in the day as our bakery staff prepares these homemade treats daily.
All of our bakery is made and baked by us, and we do run out of product, as we can only physically do so much! Call us 24 hours in advance or utilize our Online Store and Drive-Thru pick-up to guarantee that we will have your order ready for you when you visit.
We invite you to come and enjoy our farm store's warm, welcoming atmosphere and indulge in our mouthwatering treats. Whether you're looking for a sweet treat, a savory snack, or a delicious meal to warm you up on a chilly day, Helene's Hilltop Orchard has something for everyone
Remember, our bakery is made from scratch and does NOT use preservatives; thus, plan accordingly. Our bakery items must be eaten within a day or two of purchase.
As American as…you know the rest! We make huge 9-inch pies and mini 6-inch pies for those with a smaller appetite. Apple pies are available freshly baked or frozen. Other varieties are available frozen, ready for you to bake at home.
We offer much more than pies in our bakery. These signature items are made fresh and loved by all who try them.
You spoke, and we've listened! We've expanded our hours here at the farm to include the following Fridays and Saturdays in November and December!
We continue to make many of our fall favorites during this time. In addition to these, we have Christmas Cookies available in December. We sell our Christmas Cookies by the box, not by the pound or the dozen. You can choose one of our boxes with preselected cookies or purchase a 10-inch x 10-inch box and choose what cookies you would like.
Our Signature Christmas Cookie Charcuterie Boxes are available through our online store for pick-up on Saturday, December 16th, Saturday, December 23rd, and our Christmas Eve Drive-Thru on Sunday, December 24th.
Having a Helene's Hilltop Orchard pie at your Thanksgiving and Christmas table has been a tradition for many families over the past 30 years! We offer a complete holiday menu, including our favorite side dishes, just like Grandma used to make.
