Apple Mill® was established in 1927 by the English to horticulturist, William Scrope Viner. He selected Saluda for its reputation of growing flavorsome apples and berries. Saluda, home of the original North Carolina Apple Festival and the North Carolina Horticultural Society, was one of the first commercial apple growing regions in North Carolina. Fine quality fresh fruit, fruit butters, jams, preserves, and mulled cider have been produced for decades by Apple Mill®. These foods are processed on site sold to the public at Apple Mill® in Saluda, North Carolina located at Exit 59, off Interstate 26.
