We have visited Sky Top Orchard every fall since our kids were toddlers. We enjoy taking pictures with the "how tall are you Scarecrow" and eating warm cinnamon, apple donuts. Of course, we always pick apples, too.

We enjoyed venturing out into the orchard as well as seeing the chickens, bamboo garden, and playing on the playground. However, the crowd was huge and the restroom facilities weren't very clean by mid afternoon. Because it isn't far from home, we will likely visit again at some point.

Quite a steep drive up the mountain to the orchard. It is a fun place for families to visit. You can pick apples or just purchase apples in the large outdoor market. During our visit their were approximately 10 different varieties of apples for sale. Prices were very reasonable and apples were fresh.

We visit the orchard constantly on the Fall. Birthday parties are great! The $2 hay ride offers beautiful views. Playground and chickens, goats and peacocks are wonderful. What a nice place, and the apples are terrific. Fun to pick!

The fruit is right off the trees and delicious. They have many varieties of apples as well as Asian pears and pumpkins in season. The "Fresh Apple Cider" is the best I have ever tasted.

If you have little kids, this will be a real treat for them - AND you too. From picking your own apples to going on a hay ride, to kid attractions (like a puppet show, etc.), to buying freshly made pressed cider (or cider to go), to eating freshly made apple cider doughnuts - this is the place to be...

We've picking and buying apples at Sky Top for nearly 20 years. It's gotten significantly more crowded over the years, but that's an indication of a great business. While it's a little tough to find, it's worth the drive and the effort. Our kids are older so we pretty much drive up and buy apples then leave. We stopped picking... More

We were there the second weekend in November which is really to late in the season but was able to get a bag of Granny Smith apples which were good. Always enjoy the trip.

Visited was on 24/10/14. I understand the picking was over for the season, however every thing else was still sort of running. I found the overall attitude of the staff was they had made there money for the season and can not be bothered. We went to buy tickets, no one at the counter by the time some one came... More

In October, my husband and I visited Flat Rock, N.C. for the first time. We went to a matinee at the playhouse and afterward decided to explore the Skytop Orchard. It was a beautiful drive and view at the top of the mountain. We loved the entire experience. I was impressed with the varieties of apples. The smells of doughnuts... More
