Overrated; Prefer Panorama Orchards
Oct 2021
Although the apples are priced consistently at all of the orchards, the prices of the bakery and other products we compared were lowest at Panorama Orchards.

Although they advertise having fudge, there wasn't any fudge being made or sold both times we stopped by (except for prepackaged fudge in a flavor we didn't want.) I'm guessing it is due to the orchard being severely understaffed.

Do not bother with trying the hard cider; we both though the three samples we tasted were not very good-- definitely not good enough to want to drink any more than the sample.

After visiting six different orchards during our stay, we have come to the conclusion that Panorama Orchards has the nicest store with the best prices and best selection. They also make homemade ice cream and fudge; and, their bakery items are delicious. Mercier is just ok.

In-Cider Information
Sep 2021
The best thing about this place is the Winery! Stop by, try a flight. The rest of it is a tourist trap. The bakery looked delicious and the line was super long, so I would assume everything is probably fantastic. The live band was a great touch but maybe it should be located in the winery. Not in the hustle and bustle of everything. They need more kid friendly activities and I was not visiting with little ones. But you could see parents struggling to keep kids occupied and not to break/touch everything in sight.

The walk to the orchard is pretty lengthy, be prepared.

Lots of parking available.

Commercial Tourist Trap
Sep 2021 • Family
So disappointed! This isn’t a family farm enterprise. This a sophisticated commercial business. No U-pick and in fact when we went they didn’t even have apples from their own farm! Only typical store type soft, not fresh Gala Apples. It’s like going into a Costco with sampling stations to push value added products. Pure tourist trap!

Gotta Go to The Orchard
Sep 2021
If you visit Blue Ridge you gotta go to the Mercier Orchard while you are there. Just a few miles west of town. Just look for the parking lots with all the cars!! We did not get out to the orchard to pick apples, but that does not mean we left empty handed. The store has so much more than apples... We came back with Peach Butter jam, stone ground grits, apples, apple relish, fruit pies, etc. It's just fun to look at all the items available. We got gift ideas for family and friends to share. Don't forget to take the family down by the lake to relax and enjoy the view. Take lots of pictures to remember the day.

Yummy place to visit
Sep 2021
There are so many things to look at and buy here. Of course, you have to buy apples. They have sampling of them and baked goods. You've got the buy the Apple Cinnamon Bread and the Japileno Cheese Bread. They are wonderful. We couldn't wait to get a knife to try them. Just opened and pulled off pieces to eat.

Delicious items for yourself or for gifts
Aug 2021 • Family
So many amazing items in one place! I bought local sweet potato, sourwood honey, peaches, and a super crispy variety of apple. Plus a cider to go! Staff was incredibly friendly and others in my group went crazy for the fried pies!

Beautiful Orchard, Delicious Sandwiches and Amazing Fried Pies!
Jul 2021
My family and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Blue Ridge, on our way to Expedition Bigfoot. We ended up spending so much time here, enjoying lunch, shopping and the beautiful views on the property that by the time we left bigfoot was closed. Lunch was so delicious! My husband and I couldn't decide on what to choose so the kind lady taking our order gave suggestions. She was the sweetest and most patient with us. She even brought over samples of their famous apple donuts...YUM!
MUST HAVE;Ham & Jam Panini -Ciabatta bread pressed with peach jam, Black Forest ham, brie cheese, and crisp arugula & Apple Brie Panini -Thin slices of apples, creamy brie cheese and apple butter grilled on cranberry walnut bread
Add Turkey. Save room, or take a box to go, of their famous fried pies. My two favs were peach and pecan! Looking forward to our trip back in October!
