Harvesting Family Memories for Generations

The Stepp Family has been inviting guests to pick their own apples on our 70-acre working farm and apple orchard in Hendersonville NC for nearly 50 years. We invite you and your family to visit the farm to experience fun, family-friendly farm activities in a beautiful country setting on the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina near Asheville.   Pick your own apples and pumpkins or select from varieties of pre-picked apples.  Navigate our 5-acre corn maze or try hitting a target with the apple cannon.  Visit our Country Market for a delicious cup of apple cider or an apple cider slushy.  Enjoy apple cider or pumpkin donuts, fresh from our own bakery.  Bring a lunch to enjoy in picnic area beside the orchard.

Loved picking our own apples. Orchard is huge, so lots of different apples to pick from. Got some yummy apple cider donuts for the road. The people there are so friendly! Very enjoyable time.

My daughter and grandson and I make a trip every year to pick apples at Stepp's orchard. My grandson started as a toddler and is now in middle school. He always has to have a T-shirt. We love the Apple picking, cider, the donuts(yumm), and the huge cabbage. We also go back to pick the just right pumpkin for Halloween.
