See you later this year!
Here at Nivens Apple Farm, just minutes from Spartanburg and Greenville, we strive to bring you hours of good, clean, family fun. Come pick your own apples, or let us pick them for you. But that’s not all! Stick around for the afternoon. There is plenty to see and do.
Don’t leave without visiting the farm store, where you can sample some apple cider and snack on a homemade apple fritter, then shop until your heart’s content.
Having a birthday? Our party packages are great! Have a large group? Check out our group packages, too.
Nivens features an apple orchard, two corn mazes, and lots of other family-friendly activities on the farm — pedal cars, farm animals, a playground, a honey bee hive and much more.
Nivens is closed for the season, but we will be back later this year! Check back regularly for updates. We look forward to seeing you soon for the most apple picking fun in Spartanburg, Greenville and the rest of the Upstate.
Thank you to everyone
who came to our Apple Fest!
The Nivens Apple Farm Apple Fest was Saturday, Sept. 29! There was live music, plenty of fun and games for the kids, apple picking and much more. Delicious barbecue plates created by the “Carolina Rib King” himself, Solomon Williams, were sold throughout the day. And Craig DeBolt from radio station 103.3 Spin FM was on site throughout the day playing great hit music.
If you missed our Apple Fest, we hope you will come next year! In the meantime, we are open for the season, so come to the farm. On many upcoming weekends Solomon Williams — the Carolina Rib King — will be selling plates of great barbecue, and we will have live music for your enjoyment. We hope to see you soon!
