As its namesake may suggest, Apple Hill is most known for its apple harvest. Among the gorgeous foliage of fall, you'll find Gravenstein, Jonathon, Gala, Golden Delicious, McIntosh, Paula Red, Red Delicious, Mutsu, Empire, Red Gold, Honey Crisp, Pippin, Winesap, Granny Smith, Fuji, Pink Lady, and Arkansas Black apple varieties available for picking or bagged for sale.
Smokey Ridge Ranch is a quaint stop on the hill, offering freshly-picked bouquets, delicious preserves, and prohibition-style unfiltered hard cider. You can also pick your own apples and chestnuts at this ranch.
High Hill Ranch is an autumn fan-favorite if you're looking to bring apples home for baking and are hunting for a specific type. They also host local arts and crafts vendors that you can browse as you make your way to their candy shop, bakery, and hot apple cider stand. Their farm shop also offers homemade jams, syrups, caramels, and so much more! This ranch opens to visitors every August.
