The Pritchett Family Farm began in 1927 when William Tobe (W.T.) bought 140 acres of land in North Georgia. The family built the apple barn in 1971. Today generations of Pritchett family members keep the Red Apple Barn running. While the family no longer relies on a hand-powered cider press, the same customer appreciation remains. Today, you’ll likely get a warm “Welcome to the Red Apple Barn!” greeting and be sent off with a “Have a nice day!”
Pop has built his business on customer satisfaction, the quality of his merchandise and friendly service. – Pritchett Family
