Henderson County has the Perfect Climate for Apples—and You!

Henderson County is located in North Carolina's mountain region, but is characterized by an extensive plateau along the French Broad and Mills River valleys.

The terrain and climate have traditionally been a haven for apples, the traditional agricultural crop in Henderson County, especially since World War II. Today, the crop is being superseded by land development for housing and light industrial use. However, the tradition of honoring the local apple industry persists in the county's annual Apple Festival. The festival is held each year around Labor Day and culminates in the "King Apple Parade" attended by tens of thousands of spectators.
