If you plan to visit Western NC, please check beforehand to see if the area is safe following the recent flooding. Officials have closed some sections of Pisgah National Forest (including Forest Heritage Scenic Byway and Blue Ridge Parkway stops) to keep visitors out of danger. Please respect signage and local guidance.

For NC Travel Chat, we talked with Beverly Mooney, the owner of Millstone Creek Orchards in Ramseur, Randolph County. It’s just around the corner from Asheboro and the NC Zoo, right in the center or heart of North Carolina.

We also included Millstone Creek Orchards among our favorite places to go apple picking in North Carolina!

One great thing I learned from Beverly was the process of making her apple cider slushies, which are enough of a reason to add this place to your NC Bucket List. If you’re from up north, you’ll be happy to know that along with slushies, they sell Apple Cider Donuts and do u-pick apples.

Of course, you can pick various other fruits throughout spring, summer, and fall.

Beyond talking fruit, we’ll learn about the origins of this awesome farm, varieties of pumpkins I had no idea about before this conversation, and more during this delicious ride through Randolph County.

Millstone Creek Orchards also features in our NC Bucket List Book!
