The Shop Was Nice
Sep. 2020
We were just looking for apples, but I'm getting picky in my old age about varieties and I wasn't interested in the ones they had there - but the shop had all sorts of goodies and I got away with presents for my whole book group (which I won't list here in case they read my reviews).
I'm originally from the northeast and lived and worked as an adult in NY and MA so I'm used to a huge variety of apples, which I'm sure are much less common now than they once were.
Anyway, Apple Hill Orchard is a nice facility with some interesting merchandise - in addition to apples.
The turn off at the church is a bit confusing as it looks only like you're turning into the church parking lot, so we went past the turn the first time.

Coming from Michigan we just had to visit a cider mill
Oct. 2020 • Family
We decided to visit this Cidermill in Morganton with my son who is a teenager, my husband and my mother-in-law. It was a very quiet time which is exactly the way we like it. Unlike the very busy weekends that we heard about. Unfortunately, because of Covid our son could not do the apple picking, the apples were already in a bag.
We purchased a couple of dozens of the donuts & cider and sat outside in an open area with picnic tables. We felt very safe from Covid with this set up outside.
Although this was a very long trip from us from the town of Davidson my family really enjoyed it.

Disappointing
Sep. 2020
I go every year to get apples because it’s not far from where I live. Every year I wonder why I go back. The customer service is lacking as is the selection of quality apples that are already picked. Other goods are over priced. Only go if you want to go out into the orchard to pick your own apples with kids.

Still worthy of a trip
Sep. 2020
Many things have changed this year, but the quality of apples at Apple Hill Orchard has not! No tractor tours of the orchard this year due to social distancing, but still very worthy of a trip.

An Incredible Surprise
Sep. 2019
It was the beginning of Fall 2019 and we were up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stopped at one of our favorite orchards there but were disappointed with the apples that were available. We had lunch in Little Switzerland and headed back to Lenoir NC. via Morganton NC. One of the members of our group remembered an orchard in Morganton so we stopped by. WOW! Are we glad we did. The cider, apples and food items were all incredible. The HoneyCrisp apples were out of this world. There were also a large selection of other apples to choose from so we bought a number of them. The cider was fantastic.

Our friends went back again this weekend (we visited on a week day) and it was so packed there was a line waiting for a parking spot. The word is obviously out.

You can't go wrong stopping here. Your taste buds will thank you.

Mid week morning visit

A very large orchard with many varieties of apples to pick and enjoy. The store is large and well stocked and maintained. The apple cider donuts are a bonus!

Great fun to pick you own apples from many varieties, or to buy yummy apples, cider, jams, and all things apple. Nice, helpful people. Great fun for the whole family.

Apple Picking
Oct. 2018 • Friends
We enjoyed picking apples, the guided tour, and the store. It was a great experience. There could be problems with accessibility for the tour; call to verify if you need accomodations.

I absolutely love Apple Hill orchard. We have gone every year for 12 years to get our apples to make apple butter. The staff is always so helpful and assists me in getting the right kind of apples. And you will NOT beat their prices!
