What a great place! You can buy all types of apples - pick yourself - ride the wagon - just enjoy the view! They have apple drinks and best of all - DONUTS! Hot - Fresh DONUTS! I would go back!

This is truly the best and most beautiful orchard in the Asheville and Hendersonville area. It's perched on top of a low mountain surrounded by higher mountains. It has aisles and aisles of all different types of apple trees. You can buy your own apples or go out into the orchard and pick your own. Apple picking begins in August... More

All in all this place has everything you need for a beautiful Saturday afternoon and apple picking with the kids. It's on a very large piece of property which goes on and on, they have wagon rides to transport you to back and forth to the orchard if you don't want to walk all the way down and then up... More

Friends recommended this place and we really didn't have many expectations but It far exceeded our thoughts. We were pleasantly surprised how large it was as well as the many choices of apples we could pick. Our daughter loved the playground as well as the apple drink in the souvenir cup. The doughnuts were absolutely amazing and well worth the... More

This is such a nice place to spend a day when the apple season kicks in. I am from Florida and relocated to South Carolina 5 years ago. It is funny how I have changed the beach days to mountain getaways, visits to waterfalls and also peach picking, strawberry picking and apple picking. I love sky top orchard and travel... More

This is our yearly destination for Fall apples of at least 4 varieties. Love the fresh apple cider doughnuts (bet you can't eat just one). Farm animals are always a hut as well. Fun family destination for the day

Today my wife and I made out yearly trip to Sky Top Orchards. We normally go a little later in the year when more varieties of apples are ready but decided today would be a good day. Our two favorite varieties were available (Honey Crisp and Asian Pear). There were a lot of people there today, buy parking was available... More

We went early on a Sunday morning and had a great start of the day! When you arrive early there is plenty of parking space. So we went into the orchard with a wagon and three baskets. Our kids (4,8 & 10) really like the idea of picking you own apples. Don't forget to enjoy the great views! After picking... More

This is a great place to pick your own apples. We have gone for several years now and will continue to go back. The apples taste great! The Cider is a definite favorite and the donuts are so tasty. It is a GREAT place to take children. One suggestion though is to get there early. We have been in the... More
