We decided to visit this Cidermill in Morganton with my son who is a teenager, my husband and my mother-in-law. It was a very quiet time which is exactly the way we like it. Unlike the very busy weekends that we heard about. Unfortunately, because of Covid our son could not do the apple picking, the apples were already in a bag.
We purchased a couple of dozens of the donuts & cider and sat outside in an open area with picnic tables. We felt very safe from Covid with this set up outside.
Although this was a very long trip from us from the town of Davidson my family really enjoyed it.

We were just looking for apples, but I'm getting picky in my old age about varieties and I wasn't interested in the ones they had there - but the shop had all sorts of goodies and I got away with presents for my whole book group (which I won't list here in case they read my reviews).
I'm originally from the northeast and lived and worked as an adult in NY and MA so I'm used to a huge variety of apples, which I'm sure are much less common now than they once were.
Anyway, Apple Hill Orchard is a nice facility with some interesting merchandise - in addition to apples.
The turn off at the church is a bit confusing as it looks only like you're turning into the church parking lot, so we went past the turn the first time.

Many things have changed this year, but the quality of apples at Apple Hill Orchard has not! No tractor tours of the orchard this year due to social distancing, but still very worthy of a trip.

I go every year to get apples because it’s not far from where I live. Every year I wonder why I go back. The customer service is lacking as is the selection of quality apples that are already picked. Other goods are over priced. Only go if you want to go out into the orchard to pick your own apples with kids.

Great fun to pick you own apples from many varieties, or to buy yummy apples, cider, jams, and all things apple. Nice, helpful people. Great fun for the whole family.

We stopped here on our way to the Smoky's. This orchard is delightful, we didn't have enough time to pick our own, so we just bought a bag of mixed apples. They were delish, we also bout a gallon of cider, doughnuts, apple butter and fried pie. All of which were wonderful. On our vist there was a school group there also and we could here the employee explaining how cider was made to the children all who were paying attention which surprised us. The staff were so friendly and we will be going back

A very large orchard with many varieties of apples to pick and enjoy. The store is large and well stocked and maintained. The apple cider donuts are a bonus!

This orchard is a reall family experience and it is worth taking a drive to join the fun. Open in the late summer, through early December, it is very busy on the weekends with families and lots of kids out to experience apple picking, a hayride, or just shopping in the little apple store on site. They offer various apple treats like frozen slushees, apple cider, apple fritters, apple doughnuts, jams and preserves of all sorts. It is a family-run operation and everyone on staff is friendly, patient, and helpful. They specialize in having school children and preschool little ones come in for some fun learning adventures that include a ride around the orchard in a wagon pulled by a tractor, where they stop in various sections and talk a bit about the apples growing there. Check their website for dates when different varieties will be available in the store or for pick-your-own gathering.

I was on the hunt for a cider mill that also made cider doughnuts on site. Score! Close to home in Morganton, Apple Hill features some of the best cider I've ever had (bought 6 gallons to take some home and freeze), fresh doughnuts, fried apple pies, other great baked goods, jams & jellies, butters...lots to see and eat!

It was the beginning of Fall 2019 and we were up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stopped at one of our favorite orchards there but were disappointed with the apples that were available. We had lunch in Little Switzerland and headed back to Lenoir NC. via Morganton NC. One of the members of our group remembered an orchard in Morganton so we stopped by. WOW! Are we glad we did. The cider, apples and food items were all incredible. The HoneyCrisp apples were out of this world. There were also a large selection of other apples to choose from so we bought a number of them. The cider was fantastic.

Our friends went back again this weekend (we visited on a week day) and it was so packed there was a line waiting for a parking spot. The word is obviously out.

You can't go wrong stopping here. Your taste buds will thank you.
