    • Check out our fall guide with lists of pumpkin farms, fall festivals and more. The apple orchards on this list are the only ones open this year. Most apples are picked in September around here.

  2. Hello! Thanks so much for this list. We went to Fruity Patch Farm today and picked the last of the apples. Mr. C.J. Percle is so nice and helpful! His correct address is 2794 Brown Hollow Road, Columbia, TN 38401. The sign says Percle Farm. The phone number you have listed is correct.
