The mountains of western North Carolina are full of pick your own u-pick orchards. We offer more. In addition to a long list of apple varieties, visit Sky Top Orchard and you'll enjoy panoramic mountain views, orchard ponds with ducks and geese, a barnyard area with sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, peacocks and more, a bamboo forest to explore, lots of picnic areas and, of course, a mountaintop of fragrant apple and fruit trees. View our downloadable map to see all that we have to offer.

When you purchase a bushel of apples, a wagon load of pumpkins or a cooler full of apple cider you'll take home more than the makings for delicious fall recipes, you'll take home a mountain of memories too. And don't forget our famous apple cider doughnuts. They're an autumn tradition. We bet you can't eat just one.
