2. Shade Tree Farm and Orchard, Adams, TN

This orchard offers plenty of its delicious apples in its market store, but for those who want the true orchard experience they feature a pick-your-own starting at $5. While you’re here, you can enjoy a picnic lunch and the kid’s play area or pick up a few homemade goodies in the market store.

3. Pratt’s Orchard, Lebanon, TN

4. Carver’s Orchard & Applehouse Restaurant, Cosby, TN

This isn’t your typical orchard and farmers market. Part restaurant, part country store, part orchard, guests love the views of the orchard as much as the delicious food. Guests are treated to complimentary apple fritters as they wait for their meal, and you can pick up a variety of fresh apples from the barn, in addition to homemade apple goodies in store. 

5. Jones Orchard, Millington, TN

This orchard offers a variety of pick-your-own fruits, but apples tend to be a fan favorite among its visitors. With five acres of apple trees, guests can pick the best apples to help them create their favorite fall recipes.

6. Wheeler’s Orchard, Dunlap, TN

Bring the whole family for a fun day of apple picking. Here you’ll find 15 delectable varieties of apples just begging to be picked. While you’re here, pick up a cup of fresh squeezed apple cider or bring a picnic to enjoy lunch with a view.

While this isn’t a pick-your-own orchard, you can still get part of the orchard experience. Just hop aboard the tractor tour and enjoy the views. When you’re done, head to the market store and pick out your favorite apple varieties, including the Caitlin Gala that was discovered right here by Apple Valley Orchard!

8. Baker Mountain Farm, Spencer, TN
