Welcome to Nivens Apple Farm

We are open for the season!


Celebrate our final season!

Since 1974 we’ve loved opening our farm and creating memories with our guests. For generations, Nivens Apple Farm has been a family tradition, and we are so grateful to all who have visited us.  We’d like to invite you for one final season. We promise this season will be our best yet! 

— With grateful hearts, Don and Katherine Nivens

Thank you to everyone who has been out to celebrate our final season, including local media outlets:

Come on down to the farm!

It began with a simple idea way back in 1964 — the idea to develop an apple orchard for people who like to pick their own apples. We’re proud of our apples and pumpkins — we think our apples are among the best in North Carolina and South Carolina — but there’s much more to explore at Nivens Apple Farm. 

Conveniently located between Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina, Nivens features a corn maze, a playground, a gem mine and pedal cars. Spend the day with us; there is plenty of fun to be had on our farm. 

We look forward to a great 2015 season. Upstate Parent magazine and 103.3 and 95.9 Earth FM radio are partnering with us again this year on our Pumpkin Fest and already partnered with us on our Customer Appreciation Labor Day Festival and hugely successful Apple Fest. A big thank you to everyone who came out to those events! 

Have a question? Call us at 864-574-8889 or click here, come on in, and learn more about our farm!

The Pumpkin Fest is Oct. 17!

Join us down on the farm for our 2015 Nivens Pumpkin Fest, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17! 

In addition to all our usual activities, we will have a pumpkin carving contest (more on that below), live music, hay rides, pumpkin picking and more. Plus, meet your friends from 103.3 & 95.9 Earth FM radio. If you’re hungry, we will have barbecue plates and more available for purchase.

Congratulations to our Apple Pie Contest winners!
