Owner description: We are only open early August to late November/early December each season. If you see hours listed here on TripAdvisor on dates outside this range, they are incorrect. 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.

“Apples to drive for!!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Even this late in the year (first of November) the selection of apples available in the store was abundant! Did not go into the orchard to actually pick our own because they told us that it would be hard to find any left on the trees but we had tons to choose from inside, so it did not really matter! Friendly staff and wonderful place to bring children for a day of fun!

Don't miss Sky Top. The views will take your breath away. There is lots to do, and it is a relaxing, wonderful way to spend a fall day.

“The Place for Apple Everything”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

My husband and I go to Sky Top every autumn -- and often several times within the season. It's one of the fun traditions that many Upstate SC residents know about. Sometimes we pick, and sometimes we go for ready-picked fruit, but either way the apples are fresh and crisp and tastier than those found in grocery stores. The drive there is beautiful when fall foliage is at its peak, and the views from atop the mountain are panoramic and picture worthy. One feature many folks don't know about are the grape arbors. Grapes are available for picking before the apples are ready for harvest, and the grapes are ultra-delicious but do get picked quickly. During apple season, you will be tempted by the absolute best cider, apple cider donuts made while you wait, homemade deep-dish apple pies, caramel apples, apple slushy, and hot apple cider, plus various bottled, packaged, and jarred fruit and baking condiments. And always many, many pumpkins. Great place for families, singles, couples, retirees or anyone who enjoys fresh air, beautiful views, and a festive place to buy fall produce. Love this place! (One side note -- no credit cards are accepted -- cash or checks only.)

“tons of variety in apples!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Stopped here for our apple purchase. Had not been here before but was recommended by the locals. Lots of different apple variety to chose from and picked that morning. They would even cut up the different varieties so you could sample. nice touch!

“Awesome apple picking place”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Best place to pick apples. It's on top of a mountain with beautiful views. They have u-pick, or already picked apples, cider, pies, fudge, candy apples, pumpkins, gourds, jelly's etc.and wonderful hot cinnamon donuts:) The worst thing there is the blue porta johns.But you know what your getting into if you check out their web site, which they keep you up to date on what's happening and what apples are ready to be picked.
