  • An applicable apple experience in a nice day trip to Blue Ridge. We bought apples, jams and sipped on apple cider while enjoying our apple pie. Nice, big neat store with a view of the Orchards. 
  • We love Mercier Orchards! We make a trip at least once a year to fill up on fried pies, apples (pink lady), apple cider, apple cider donuts and jellies/jams. You can't go wrong here. Even the kids lov...  more »
  • Great place to meander and discover tasty treats. Good place to take out town guests. Purchased new apples and peaches based on the samples given. Was not disappointed.

  • Great family owned orchard with something for everyone. We have been going here every year for apple picking for the last several years. The apple picking experience is fun and best in late September and October. The bakery is a must. Their fried pies and apple fritters are out of this world. My personal favorite combo is a dozen apple cider donuts with a gallon of apple cider to wash it down.
  • They have a great market for apples, bakery, and other knick knacks at the orchard. We came there Oct 22 hoping to pick some apples but the apples have been all picked. There was a drought this yr so there weren't many apples to pick. The tractor tour through the orchard was fun! $4 per person for the ride. We were apple to walk through some part of the orchard and take pictures pretending we picked them. Overall great experience at the orchard. FYI.. purchase the apple cider donuts and apple pie! They were absolutely delicious!
  • Apples, apples and more apples! They can be super crowded during the picking season but for good reason. You can buy apples in every food or drink variation possible, pick your own, take a farm tour and even eat a delicious lunch in their restaurant. I especially liked the hard cider tasting room.
  • Great experience. Awesome apples. REALLY GREAT fried apple pies. Make sure you pick your own. They taste better than bagged ones in my opinion.
  • Fun for a couple hours. Go early if you're going on the weekend, it gets busy. Also, avoid the apple festival weekend unless that's why you're there. The fried pies, those are the real selling point. Get them. Get lots of them.
