Baber's Orchard Fruitstand would have been Johnny Appleseed's dream!! They have everything imaginable made with an apple or fruit. Their apple cake is delicious. I purchase them yearly for Christmas gifts. Everyone always looks forward to receiving one.

This was a nice little stop on the side of the road, outside of Waynesville. It was a lot smaller than expected. When you walk in, the entire room smells like apples though! SO GOOD! Lots of jams and preserves in small and large containers...More
