Things to do in Greenville: Skytop Orchard in Flatrock

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greenville Upstate

Apple season is here!! We are excited to enjoy the wide variety of local apples that grow so well in the foothills of SC! Just a short drive from Greenville is Skytop Apple Orchard in Flat Rock, NC. With some of the best apple picking around, Skytop is a great attraction full of family fun. The orchard offers pick-your-own options as well as a market full of apples ready to be plucked off the shelf. The orchard boasts 70 acres and sits on top of Mt. McAlpine, so there are plenty of spectacular views to take in while you fill your basket. The leaves haven’t changed just yet, so if you plan to take in the fall foliage on your trip to Western NC, plan your orchard trip closer to October when Fuji, Rome and Pink Ladies are in season!

Skytop Orchard is a great place to take the family to learn about where our fruit comes from. Kids can get out in the field and pick their own apples to take home and enjoy. The orchard also has a variety of animals on site as well as play areas for a full day of fun!

So whether you are looking to make a few pies, jams or just take a bite, Skytop Orchard is a fantastic place to get seasonal, high quality apples at a great price! 

P.S--The apple cider donuts are well worth the drive!
