Bobb, you will need to look west of Charlotte for your apple orchards. Start with Hendersonville, which has an apple fest this time every year. Or even closer would be Lincolnton. North Carolina Cooperative Extension: Lincoln County Apple Festival (broken link) or HomegrownHandmade - Site Information (http://www.homegrownhandmade.com/T_PD6/PD6SiteDetail.asp?ID=2941&Town=Lincolnton&County=L incoln - broken link)

Brushy Mountains in Wilkes County are known for their apples. This is about 2 hours from Charlotte to the Northwest.

Looks like you already missed the NC Apple Fest in Hendersonville this year. Maybe next year? North Carolina Apple Festival

Just across the NC stateline in York, South Carolina is a placed called Windy Hill Orchard. Not sure how good the crop is this year but her is the website just in case you are interested:

Most of North Carolina's apple crop was wiped out from a hard freeze last Easter weekend.

Their harvest fest is October 20th. The late blooming apple varieties of apples will be ok as they escaped the freeze. Apples dont require as much rain as some other crops, like peaches.
