We decided we could not let another fall go by without heading to the North Carolina mountains for an apple picking trip. For years we've heard how cool Sky Top Orchard is and when I checked out their website I was smitten. Then I saw something about "made while you watch" apple cider cake donuts.
Then I glanced at their Area Attractions page and realized Flat Rock was quite the little foodie town. That sealed the deal. We settled on the funky looking Flat Rock Village Bakery as our first stop on the tour. The plan was to get sandwiches to go and have a picnic at the orchard (on the fall quilt, of course). They had better plans for us as only pizza and salad was offered and, boy, was it yummy! We ate it on their artsy little deck and couldn't believe how warm it was.

The apple cake donuts were a huge hit, but this photo above is all the evidence we have! They went fast and I was too busy eating to take photos.
We are definitely making this a fall family tradition!
Hope you had a great weekend, too!
