NC Mountain Apple Orchards
NC Mountain Apple Orchards are the best in the east! Farms offer everything from hayrides to the trees so you can pick your own apples, to warm apple pie. Here is our list of Apple orchards located in the NC High Country of Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Wilkesboro, West Jefferson along the Blue Ridge Parkway of North Carolina.
The Orchard at Altapass
Blue Ridge Parkway MP 328.3
MUSIC & DANCE
The orchard offers live music every day but Tuesday from May-October. You will find locals and visitors clogging and flatfooting to local bluegrass bands most days.
After all that dancing, you can have a bowl of apple pie with ice cream. Or, you can visit the outdoor food stand for farm-to-table sandwiches and other specialties.
In September- October, the orchard is open to the public for apple picking. You may purchase a bag in the barn, and then walk through the orchard. Apples are also available for purchase indoors if you don't want to do the work yourself!

When you return to the barn, try an apple cider slushie or donuts, purchase dried apples, jams, etc. and try out the apple cannon! For more details, click HERE
Mollie Chomper Hard Cidery
Yes, we know that this isn't an apple orchard, but we thought it was worth mentioning! Mollie Chomper only uses apples from small local orchards to produce there hard cider. You can stop in for a glass most days (and the drive to Lansing is spectacular in the fall). To learn more, click HERE
