Looking for some good recommendations on U-Pick Apple Orchards around the Greenville Area....

Any feedback on Skytop Orchard over the border in NC? How about Perdue's Farm outside of Travelers Rest? Any advice on atmosphere, pricing, etc would be much appreciated in planning my next fall outing!

My daughter went to Skytop a few weeks ago and is going back to get more soon. I guess the return trip speaks volumes.

took my family to skytop 2 weeks ago and had a good time, the scenery was beautiful very laid back atmosphere and a little playground for kids, they have a hay ride for $2.00 a person as well as a farm in the back of the orchard and a small little nature walk, will be going to Perdues sometime next month.

We love Skytop. We go a couple times in the fall. It is such a preety place! Apples in large bag I want to say 1/2 bushel is $18.00. If you call they will tell you what it is per pund (if you had to figure it out). When I did last yr it was like 30 per pund. Also, don't forget the apple cider donuts...yum!

It depends on the kind of apples you want. Welcome to SkyTop Orchard this will tell you what apples are ready when. We went a few weeks ago. The leaves were just starting to turn. We went last year in Oct. it was great for leaves but a far walk for the apples. Most of the closer trees get picked first. Have fun!

We do like SkyTop. Granddad's in Hendersonville is another good place to visit. They are located off of the Bat Cave exit of I-26, about two miles from the interstate, heading away from Hendersonville. If still available, you have to try the Honeycrisp apples. They are great. Granddad's also sells a lot of old Coca-Cola crates. You remember those? My grandfather used to make those in the basement of his house. I remember that he always tried to get us grandchildren to take one or two home. We thought he was crazy. I sure wish I had taken one or two, not for the monetary reasons, but for sentimental reasons.

Looks like we better get up there soon to get some "eating" apples...sadly looks like the Honeycrisp mentioned in the previous post are gone.

Hope the weather is decent this weekend, but it looks doubtful.

BTW, Happy Fall everyone...starts at 5:18PM today (9/22).

Fall/Autumn (particularly October) is the best time of year in the Upstate! It is usually the most predictable as well, with weeks of clear blue skies and comfortable temperatures, not to mention gorgeous colored leaves later in the month.
