The Best Pie In Tennessee Can Be Found At This Charming Orchard
Tennessee isn’t known for its apple orchards – that’s usually prime time for the New England sector of the country. But at Carver’s Orchard & Applehouse Restaurant, you’ll simply forget you’re in the lower half of the country. Fall in love with the rolling hills and changing colors of the leaves, bring your sweet kids and your spouse or your best friend. Carver’s is where you come to belong, where you come to make memories and indulge in the greatest pie you’ve ever tasted. Oh, is that a grand promise? We stand by it.
The Carver family has operated their Tennessee orchard since the 1940s, and have come to foster more than 40,000 apple trees on their fertile land. There are over one hundred varieties of trees, each bursting with apples every autumn.
You can eat at the Carver Apple House, or peruse their in-house farmer's market. Carver Orchards exudes a sense of family-owned sweetness, a beautiful depiction of Tennessee's true-to-heart values and deep tie to the land.
Can you imagine eating a meal with a view like this?! It's especially pretty when the apple blossoms are in full bloom, or during the autumn when the leaves slowly begin to change color. You truly get to experience the beauty of Tennessee's seasons here on the east side of the state. (On the west side too, of course - they just need more apple orchards!)
Make sure to shop their apple stalls, because there's no way you can leave without packing a bit of Tennessee fall in your bag. You can make up some delicious pastries in your own kitchen, which means you bring the south right home with you.
There are so many options. HOW CAN YOU EVEN CHOOSE?
And here it is - the star of the hour. The gem of Tennessee, the best apple pie you'll have this side of the Mississippi: the Carver's Fried Apple Pie. You can't visit without a seriously moment of indulgence with these little gems. Fried to perfection, perfectly flaky on the outside and dense, fruity and tangy on the inside, it just doesn't get better than this. Plus, it's easily transportable. What more do you need?
You can visit for yourself at 3462 Cosby Highway in (you guessed it!) Cosby, Tennessee. Visit anytime during the week from 8am to 6pm, and on weekends from 8am to 8pm.
