Hendersonville NC Family-Owned Orchard & Farm
The Justus family has been growing apples for over 100 years, we love what we do and invite you to come experience our apple orchard in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Enjoy a day in the country with your family, picking apples from our dwarf-size apple trees, bring your lunch and enjoy eating it at our new picnic area while you take in the beautiful views surrounding our apple orchard.
We offer apple orchard tours for families, church groups and other groups featuring quality apples and a great time for all. You can pick your own apples, or we can pick them for you, but whichever way you like it you’re sure to find the variety of apple you love. Make sure while you are here you visit our bakery for your favorite dessert. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Pete Justus and his father began growing apples at Justus Orchard in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
In 2006 Don and Margo Justus took the reins and changed course to no longer sell apples to big named companies and shifted the business to Agritourism. With this came an expansion to the sales area, a bakery, animals to interact with and a play area for kids including a huge Jumping Pillow. Every weekend you can find fun activities such as: horse drawn hayrides, music, face painting, vendors and even Sheriff, Fire and Rescue vehicles so kids can meet our men and women who bravely serve.
