We are closed for the 2015 season and will reopen Aug. 2016. We have requested that TripAdvisor remove the hours from our listing but this has not happened. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Always check our website for the most up-to-date information. We are a Pick-your-own apple orchard offering family-fun activities including apple and cider tastings, hayrides and a nature walk through a "bamboo" forest. Our season typically runs from the first week of August to the last week of November or first week of December depending on weather and other factors.

Sky Top is one of the greatest assets of the area. It preserves the beauty and culture of Henderson Co apple farming. Its owners and staff work hard to make it a place enjoyed by all who visit.

Apple picking, Apple donuts and a playground. It was a lovely visit. You can spend a short time or several hours there. They also have a hay ride. The apples were delicious. Lots of photo opportunities. Highly recommend!

There is a reason that there is a steady stream of cars going up the mountain in the fall. The owners are very knowledgeable and they have a great selection of apples that you can pick yourself. Get there early in the season if you want Honey Crisp apples they go fast and for good reason. While you're there, try... More

Visited two different apple orchards in one day! This place was way, way better by far. It has huge quantities available, and in many varieties. If I could complain, I would say their apple donuts are inferior to other vendors nearby. A minuscule annoyance!

We go every year to Sky Top - their cider donuts are amazing, don't pass them up while still warm. Views are great - take the "hay" ride (bring cash for everything!). The ground offer bamboo forest, petting zoo and of course apples. Best before October or you are apple hunting not apple picking...

I first went to this place when I move to Western North Carolina in 2008. It impressed me so much, that I used the Skytop name in my business. I've been here many times on many occasions but the fall is the best time to visit. They absolutely rock it when it comes to having hay rides and attractions for... More

I've heard of this place before, so my friend & I checked it out on a Sat. afternoon. Lots of cars but parking was accessible. Pretty drive from Hwy 25 to its entrance. Staff was very friendly and helpful. When I asked questions about the apples, I got a lot of information. I have read negative comments from 2014 about... More

We had stopped at a place in SC and were depressed; no apples, no pretty scenery. I asked if there was another place up near Hendersonville and she said Sky Top. Ok perfect I called first to make sure they had apples left on the tree. OMG did they ever have apples!!! My daughter had to nap and drive time,... More
