Jeter Mountain Farm invites the community to its Grand Opening weekend Aug. 15-16 Marking the official start to their U-pick apple season, guests will quickly find there is more to enjoy during a visit than what one might expect.

Breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are the backdrop to a variety of activities that every age can enjoy. In addition to over 23 varieties of apples throughout the harvest season, a visit to Jeter Mountain Farm offers fresh apple cider donuts, a children’s play area, fresh slushies and apple cider pressed on-site, a farm market, wagon rides, and now a brand new hard cider taproom.

The farm is pleased to be partnering with Flat Rock Cider Co. to bring a new hard cider taproom to Western North Carolina. The taproom will feature six ciders on tap — all made from local apples — and includes a special Jeter Mountain Farm original blend made only from Jeter Mountain Farm apples, and available only at the taproom. Guests will receive a free souvenir pint glass if they participate in a tasting, or they can take a four-pack home for later.

Jeter Mountain Farm is open to guests Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To keep up with special events, be sure to follow them on facebook or visit their website at
