How do you like them Apples?

Apple Blossom Time in Cashiers Valley

The Western North Carolina Mountains have always had a favorable climate for growing fine apples, and one of the first things planted after the pioneers cleared their land was an apple orchard. In little over ten years after the Zachary family had arrived in Cashiers Valley, we find a written record of apple trees in the store account books of Alexander Zachary. Besides recording the names of the customers at his store and listing merchandise they were buying, he periodically made mention of the activity in his apple groves.
