The Altapass Orchard
opens up for the season annually in early May and has for over 100 years provided the Southeast and local area with delicious varieties of fresh mountain apples. The Burnsville NC Mountains and climate of the Blue Ridge is ideal for growing mountain fresh apples. The 102-year-old Altapass Orchard, which is nestled right on the Blue Ridge Parkway NC along the Eastern Continental Divide, has been providing bushels upon bushels of various varieties ever since the Clinchfield Railroad built the orchard in 1908.
Currently, the Altapass Orchard grows varieties such as Stayman-Winesap, York Imperials, King Luscious, Golden Delicious, Virginia Beauty, Rome Beauty, and Grimes Golden apples. Throughout the high season, from early May until late fall, there is plenty to do. At the Altapass Orchard you can enjoy various family fun events including storytelling, hayrides, orchard bird watching, and so much more. The gift shop sells tons of neat homemade items including delicious homemade apple pies, fritters and other delicious treats and, of course, fudge!
