  • Worth a stop! The view from the back porch is incredible! There was live music in the afternoon, basic food from the grille (burgers, etc), and a cool shop. We got food and pie and sat on the porch...

  • We drove past the orchard several times while traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Then we read some reviews and decided we had to stop by and have some of their apple pie a la mode. Good decision.....  more

  • The histroy of this place is very interesting. We took the wagon tour but the wagon had one flat tire so we didn't get the full tour. The band was nice to listen to which was one of the main reason....  more

  • I never thought I would have had a chance to come and visit this place, but the opportunity came. A few years back I found out that I'm related to the McKinney's. They have a book about them. I'm from Matilda McKinney line. They had nothing on her line. We do exist. The people were very friendly.
  • I love the O! I'm so fortunate to be able to visit here several times a year. The heirloom apples are they way nature intended. This nonprofit organization promotes and preserves the Blue Ridge Mountain culture through music and storytelling. The people of the Orchard are so kind. I wish that I could give them 10 stars!
  • Altapass is a very tranquil place. The view is beautiful and there are lots of fun things to buy in the store. The orchard and trails aren't that big/long, so this isn't a full day activity. They also do not have an meal food, only things like apple pie and icecream. They also don't have a playground, animals, or apple cannons like some of the other local orchards. More food and hard apple cider would bump them to 5 stars!
  • Love the Orchard, views, butterfly garden, gift shop, treats, apples and so much more. Great destination for everyone in the family.
  • Come see Bill Carson, he’s “Saving The Good Stuff” for you and a dance. Just refreshing, technology free, good old fashion fun. The facility has much to explore, the staff is great and the ambiance is spectacular.
