Sky Top Orchard ::: Day Trip Fun!

We love fall!! It may be 90 degrees outside, but bring on the pumpkin spice everything!! The CSRA is a few hours drive from multiple places you can enjoy fall fun with your family. This includes apple picking! Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC is a personal favorite and highly recommended by parents everywhere! 

About Sky Top Orchard

Sky Top Orchard was founded in the 1960s by Everette Butler. The land was originally bought with just a few apple trees on it, but by 1968, it became a commercial apple orchard that sold to local supermarkets. The farm is family operated and was eventually converted to a U-Pick orchard. They also added all the extras like play structures, cut-outs, and the duck pond to help create a fun environment your family can enjoy for years to come! 

Apple Picking, Hayrides, Animal Farm & More!

After you pick apples, Sky Top Orchard offers these following activities…

Tractor-Pulled Hayrides (there is no actual hay in order to accommodate those with allergies)

Duck Pond (bring change for feeders)

Animal Farm 

Large Playground Area

Bamboo Forest 

Wooden Cut-Outs For Picture Taking

Fruit Market

The Best Apple Cider Donuts Ever! 

I have to give a personal plug for this…the apple cider donuts are literally the best thing you will eat. We grabbed them before we left and they were gone before we hit the highway. Do not leave without grabbing a few boxes.
