Award-winning Orchard on the top of a mountain. Great map available online showing where the many different types of apples grow on the mountain. Good info also available re time table for picking each type of apple. Love the fresh cider and warm donuts in addition to apples! Huge orchard. Hayride available. We look forward to next season!

A very fun place to visit, cling for dear life while hanging precariously from an apple tree branch (loads of fun I must admit) . They have Apple Cider doughnuts that are absolutely amazing. People of many nationalities were here which surprised me at 1st, but eventually I saw why as it is an amazing place.

My husband, my dog, and I went here back in early October on a Sunday morning and the lines were crazy. We wanted to try some of the food but the line was so long we ended up going to eat in Hendersonville. There were barely any apples left either so it seems it's best to go in September. The... More

We had a very enjoyable couple of hours here. The apple picking season has wound down so picking isn't great but the kids had fun with the hayride, the pre picked apples and pears were really good and the donuts were fantastic. Very pretty views and good kid play area.

Love this place! We go at least twice a year to pick apples and there have been occasions we drive the one hour for just the delicious cider and donuts. If you want an outdoor adventure with the family or a group, this is a great option. You get to experience nature with all five senses at an affordable price!... More

Great location with great views and so many types of apples. Love walking all over the spacious orchard. More than just an orchard they offer tractor rides, petting zoo, play area, hot apple donuts, and apple slushies. Staff very helpful in directing where to pick apples, how to store them and what their best uses are. Very easy to spend... More

I bring my family here every year, it is our favorite orchard. Huge playground petting zoo for kids when you need a break. There is a hay ride for additional cost. Please note that they do not accept cards at all, but there is an ATM machine on site. They do accept checks and cash. The selection of apples is... More

Our children work here and David and Lindsey (the owners) are true gems. They are wonderful to work for and the orchard is absolutely gorgeous. There's many orchards where we live but nothing can beat the friendliness and views of this one. There's a playground, animals and if there's a line for donuts you definitely need to wait. So so...
