Come see us! It’s pumpkin time!

YES! WE ARE OPEN! Nivens Apple Farm is still open, and we look forward to seeing you down on the farm. Our pumpkin patch is open and brimming with pumpkins for you to pick just in time for Halloween, so come on by, pick your perfect pumpkin and stay for a while. All our usual activities are still available — there are still plenty of things to do down on the farm!

WHAT ABOUT APPLES? All our apples have been picked from our trees, but don’t worry — we still have plenty of delicious apples in our cooler that we’ve picked and sorted for you, all ready for purchase.

WHEN DOES THE FARM CLOSE FOR THE SEASON? We will be open for business through Nov. 13, so come on down and say hello. Visit the corn maze. Check out the gem mine. Shop in our farm store. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon! 


Thanks for attending our Apple Fest!

The Nivens Apple Farm Apple Fest was Saturday, Sept. 28! We had 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 we had the 103.3 Earth FM radio team (home of the Love in the Morning show) on site throughout the day playing great music.

Be sure to check out Upstate Parent magazine, and listen to 103.3 Earth FM. We were proud to partner with these great local media outlets, and encourage our customers to support them all year long. 

If you missed the festival, you can still enjoy some great barbecue from Solomon Williams — the Carolina Rib King — who is at our farm regularaly. We hope to see you soon!

During our Apple Fest, we awarded prizes in our Apple Recipe Contest. We searched for the best baked good or dessert — you know, that recipe that is the envy of all your family and friends. The one the kids absolutely love. Congratulations to all the winners!



Special thanks to our media sponsors, Upstate Parent and 103.3 Earth FM


YES! We are still open for the season!

Nivens Apple Farm is open for the 2013 fall season! Here at Nivens Apple Farm, just minutes from Spartanburg and Greenville, we strive to bring you hours of good, clean, family fun. 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.

We look forward to seeing you for the most apple-picking fun in Spartanburg, Greenville and the rest of the Upstate. PLEASE NOTE: All our apples are picked for the 2013 season. We still have plenty of apples in our cooler that we’ve picked for you, and there are plenty of pumpkins available for picking or purchase!
