Welcome to Sky Top Orchard!

We open for the 2020 season in July. See you soon!

The mountains of western North Carolina are full of pick your own u-pick orchards. We offer more. In addition to a long list of apple varieties, visit Sky Top Orchard and you'll enjoy panoramic mountain views, orchard ponds with ducks and geese, a barnyard area with sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, peacocks and more, a bamboo forest to explore, lots of picnic areas and, of course, a mountaintop of fragrant apple and fruit trees. View our downloadable map to see all that we have to offer and visit our picking schedule to find out what's available now.

When you purchase a bushel of apples, a wagon load of pumpkins or a cooler full of apple cider you'll take home more than the makings for delicious fall recipes, you'll take home a mountain of memories too. And don't forget our famous apple cider doughnuts. They're an autumn tradition. We bet you can't eat just one.
