Doles Orchard Apples

Thank you for taking the time to review our products and consider working with us! Whether you are looking for stock retail items, custom wood work, or engraving services, our goal is to give you top quality service and a product we can both be proud of!

Doles Orchard is a small family farm in southern Maine.
Earl, Nancy and their daughter, Emily, have been focusing on pick-your-own fruit for almost twenty-five years. They fell in to making Allagash Brewing’s House Beer 24 case wooden crate after selling the brewery tart cherries in their handmade apple boxes. The crates have been a great addition to the offerings at Allagash’s Tasting Room, selling approx. 6,000 boxes in less than 3 years!


After expanding our small “hobby shop” into an efficient woodworking shop, we decided it was time to expand our new business. In order to make and customize boxes for a large range of business needs and styles, we decided that it was necessary to invest in a laser machine – that would enable us to customize our work and create small orders without the added expense, and limited range of wood burning brands. (Branding is still available.)

Doles Orchard Box Shop’s work began with custom products for a range of businesses throughout the northeast. With their growing retail line reaching a much broader audience – the growing demand for quality, local goods, and our unique, eco-friendly, 100% made in the USA products are a connection your customers will appreciate!

We continue to expand our offerings and are always happy to work with you to create a product that fits your needs and looks great too – all with the service you can only expect from a small family business.
