Welcome to the Orchard at Altapass and the majesty of Blue Ridge Mountains. Music fills the red barn Saturday and Sunday. Heirloom apples from July through October. There is so much to do and see in this vast region of winding roads, crackling rivers, and pristine vistas in a backdrop of verdant peaks and lush valleys. Come for the apples, stay for the music and a bite. Experience a weekend of fun in the trees. We invite you to discover Western North Carolina.
