We were in Hendersonville for the weekend and stopped by Grandad’s to try some apple treats. We got the donuts and applesauce cookies. Both were very yummy. We wished later that we had bought more. I also enjoyed getting to see the goats and donkey.

We went there for the apples. Found a nice selection of pre-picked or pick you own. They have a nice bakery too and the line went out the door. We will go back again when we’re in town again.

We do close Nov. 10 this year so it may be because we are about to end our season. But we do still have our animals and rocking chairs. We moved the animals so people would not be in the traffic

Visiting Asheville to enjoy the Fall! As part of it we visited Grandad’s Apples. It was perfect! From the hot apple cider, apple pie, corn maze, and apple trees, it hit all the “Fall” must do’s! Really enjoyed our time spent at Grandad’s Apples!
