Kappus Farms

Burt, NY 14028


Our History:

From Germany’s Black Forest to the Banks of Lake Ontario

The Kappus Family traces its farming roots to its ancestors in Baden-Baden, a small town in the southwestern area of the Black Forest, near the German border with France. It was in this region that Fredrick C. Kappus, I, tended his apple orchards along with a small herd of cattle, common for ranchers living in the area at the time.  After the Kappus Family migrated to the United States, they settled in Eden, New York, where Fredrick C. Kappus, II took up dairy farming before Fredrick C. Kappus, III eventually transitioned back to fruit farming.  Kappus Farms Inc. was finally established in its current location by the son of Fredrick C. Kappus, III, and Thomas Fredrick Kappus in 1973.  Over the years, the Kappus Farms name has become synonymous with high quality fruit produced in a loving family environment, a legacy that the Kappus Family continues to strive to uphold.
