We were taking a drive through Flat Rock, when we saw the sign pointing up the mountain to Sky Top Orchard...about a mile (or less) up the road, we were stopped behind bumper to bumper cars snaking up the road...it was a Saturday. When we made it to the top to park, it was a sight to see...there must have... More

Nice mountain drive, would have gave a better rating but our main purpose was to get some good tasting apples. They were giving out free samples and we were not impressed with the flavor. We have gone to many orchards over the years and were not pleased with the taste. It was probably due to the weird weather we had... More

Picked apples as a family on a foggy day so no views to see for us but we had a very fun time. Try some apple cider doughnuts no matter how long the line is.. Delicious! We left with apples,pumpkins,doughnuts, and great family memories.

I visited this orchard first time on Sunday (Oct 20, 2014). The person who was driving the tractor was rude while asked with any questions. At the end, the employee asked for tips although we paid for the ticket. While I said he don't deserve it, he was extemely rude.

The staff had no idea which orchards still had apples and which did not. We spent most of our time wandering the fields in search of an apple that wasn't rotted or on the ground. Finally picked some apples, and walked back. However, the chaos in the apple shed was epic. When paying I explained we were paying for some... More

I love this place. Our kids always have a great time. I wouldn't take young kids or strollers....it is a hike back up the mountain....with a bucket of apples! The donuts are wonderful, and I don't even like donuts. I like the pumpkin ones. My husband and kids like the apple ones. You can wait in line anywhere from 10... More
