A word of warning: the crowd is insane. It's absolute chaos. If you're headed there on a weekend just relax and practice your meditative breathing as you sit in a long line of cars up the mountain road to the Apple Barn. It is worth it though. The scenery is wonderful and the apples are so delicious. We came home with Fuji, Golden Delicious and Stayman varieties and a gallon of yummy cider.
What a beautiful way to spend the afternoon. Check out the photos from our adventure below.
|Apples ripe on the vine. I can't remember the variety.|
My best guess is Stayman.
|This is why I love this place. You have a beautiful view west|
toward the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Grant is in blue and Janelle's holding my hand.
|Looking for some low hanging Golden Delicious apples.|
There were none, unless you wanted the rotten ones
on the ground.

|Without an apple picker (a long pole with a basket|
on the end) this is the only way to get
some of the apples.
