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.

I took my 11 year old to the orchard for the afternoon. We had a wonderful time picking apples and drinking hot cider. The staff is friendly and very helpful/informative. We will definitely make this trip a part of our autumn tradition!
