Nicest apples in the mountains. Home baked apple donuts, apple cakes, apple turnovers, and fritters are always worth the drive. Animals and playground make it one of our favorite stops with our granddaughter every fall!

When passing through Hendersonville, I love to stop here to buy some fresh apples. Great prices and so many varieties to choose from! Pink Lady is my absolute favorite. Definitely buy some fresh apple donuts while you are there. They won't disappoint!

We have been to Grandad's many times during the season. Their apples are always fresh and reasonably priced. The staff is very knowledgeable & friendly. The apple cider is fantastic & their doughnuts are legendary.
