The seeds for Bryson’s were planted in the 1960s when Richard Bryson went on a bear hunt in Long Creek and fell in love with the area. He moved his wife and sons to the area and soon planted a few apple trees on his new farm. Every year, they added more trees until an orchard was created and became famed for its sweet and tart varieties of apples that are available from August through November. The family added peach trees in 1999 and the farm is run by Richard’s sons, Marvin and Michael, and their families.
You can pick your own or buy a bag of apples the family has picked (we made a wonderful apple pie with ours).
It’s a great way to spend a fall Sunday after a Clemson football game.
