Apple Mill® Orchard & Outlet Store

Apple Mill® orchard is located on the southern slopes of the mountains of western North Carolina, home of apples known countrywide for their exceptional flavor. Apple Mill® products are made with fresh apples from our orchard and from neighboring orchards. Each apple represents the hard work of the grower tending to the tree all year-round.

Apple products are prepared on site at Apple Mill's® outlet store. Glass windows separate the processing area from the retail area allowing customers to view production. The aroma of fruit cooking rolls down the hill to invite people passing by to come in and taste Apple Mill's® speciality foods.

At least six months of the year apples are sold and processed at Apple Mill®. The remainder of the year is spent cooking other local fruits and berries as they are harvested. The majority of products are fruit butters, however, some preserves, jams and jellies are also prepared at Apple Mill®.

Customers who visit Apple Mill® enjoy drinking our fresh cider and mulled cider. The mulled cider is cooked with whole spices and has no sugar added. Customers enjoy sipping hot cider and casually conversing while they leisurely shop. Shoppers are welcome to make their selections independently or discuss customizing a gift or other purchase to fit their needs.

Apple Mill® also offers a selection of wooden boxes constructed on our farm. Many of the boxes are designed to hold Apple Mill® products as well as other items sold in the store. The boxes are carefully cut out of beautiful wood and can be used in a variety of ways after the food has been consumed.

"Goodness Grows in North Carolina" is a division of North Carolina Department of Agriculture designed to promote and market products grown in North Carolina. Apple Mill® Whole Apple Butter was the first of our products to be accepted into the program. We are very proud to be members and our other products have been accepted as well.
