Fall is just about here and you’re probably hunting the perfect activity to celebrate the season. Local mom Kristina loves Justus Orchard and is telling us why this is one fall road trip you’re going to make into your new family tradition. After all, Justus Orchard offers tons of fun activities for the kids and tasty treats too!
There are lots of great reasons to visit Justus Orchard in the gorgeous mountains of Hendersonville this fall: the apples are delicious, the scenery is peaceful and picturesque, the family who runs the business is very kind and have been running the orchard for four generations, and the apple cider donuts and slushies are delicious. I don’t even like donuts but put one of those in front of me and I’m not going to say no.
This year, they opened up a full two months ahead of schedule on May 27, 2022 through Memorial Day Weekend and were open every weekend after that until apple season. They are now open daily for the 2022 apple season. They have their delicious apple slushies, apple fritters, apple donuts, fried apple pies, and fruits and vegetables. Their big playground is open as well, plus all the farm activities like animals to visit and a jumping pillow.
If you want to add on other activities in Hendersonville for your day trip, try the free train museum, the Carl Sandburg home, the Fairy Trail at Bullington Gardens, or the Team ECCO aquarium.(more…)
