Apple Barn Cider Mill and Village: Savor the Gifts of Autumn

When fall arrives in the Smoky Mountains, I always want to mark the season with the smells and tastes of autumn. In one pleasant stop, you can find immediate sensory gratification for yourself, and also harvest some quality items for your friends and family back home.

The Apple Barn Cider Mill and General Store anchors a scenic complex, which is tucked between the Little Pigeon River and its hillside orchards. It is the perfect location to find all things apple, with quality souvenirs and gifts at reasonable prices. Most anyone would enjoy receiving a pottery apple baker dish with a bag of fresh apples, as an example. Cider made onsite and hand pies for immediate consumption also provide the energy needed to keep exploring the adjacent stores, which offer homemade ice cream, candy, and more.

Two restaurants on the property also deserve your attention: Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant and the Applewood Farmhouse Grill. Both are country cooking tasty, one serving family-style meals and the other an a la carte menu. Browse the menus for both locations at this link:

So after checking in to your Sevierville, Tennessee cabin rental, please don’t miss visiting this shopping and restaurant experience when you are here. Located just off the Parkway at traffic light 12.6, the Apple Barn Village is worth your attention as a truly delicious diversion. Enjoy!
