If You Only Visit One North Carolina Orchard This Year Make It This One
Apple season in the mountains is full of fun and surprises for the entire family. From lively events to hand-picked apples, and fresh treats like apple butter and cider, apple orchards are a great way to enjoy the outdoors while make lasting memories. And if you only visit one apple orchard in the Tar Heel State all year, make it The Orchard at Altapass.
