A Family Tradition – Grandad’s Apple Farm in Hendersonville NC

Grandad's Apple Farm and Pumpkins in Hendersonville NC

Today was the time when our family heads out to Grandad’s Apple Farm in Hendersonville North Carolina. Over the past few years, this has become a family tradition for us. This year there was only a handful of us, as some had prior commitments, and others had to work. But we have learned that as a family, we must make great memories while we still can, so heading out to this farm is more than just about apples.

We walked, talked, enjoyed the sun, escaped to the shade for a few, hung out by the lake, played by the cornfield, had some fun in the playground area, met some other nice folks, and took home two bags of apples to make all sorts of delicious desserts.

I just love looking out across this huge cornfield, taking a deep breath, and gazing upon the mountains that rise into the sky.

Golden Delicious Apples in Hendersonville NC

There we plenty of choices when it came to apples, although certain ones like Pink Lady and Candy Crisp were not ready yet. You can see our photo about those on the AskHendersonville Facebook Page. The apples pictured above were called Golden Delicious, and once you bite into them, you will know how they got the name.

And although we took photos and made memories all over the farm, there we also several statues that you could take a photo with. Grandma and her butler are located right at the barn entrance, and the gorilla and bear are in the kids playground area. Oh, and the barn has just about everything you can imagine making with apples. From ice cream, to bread, to pastries, and even some bottled hard cider to take the edge off.

So if you are looking for a great spot to take the family, or spend time with friends; this is a must-have experience if you are in the Hendersonville and Western North Carolina area.
