Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant serves up fresh country cooking every day and every meal starts with their signature Applewood Julep, fried Apple Fritters and fresh Apple Butter.
Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant is situated on a working apple orchard and located in the farmhouse built in 1921. In historical circles, the home is alled the Mullendore House. When you are there be sure and see the wonderful built-in oak furniture in the original dining room – which was carved by African-American contractor Lewis Buckner (1856-1924).
In 1972, the Bon Hicks family and the Bill Kilpatrick family bought the 65 acre property from Roger Mullendore and operated it as a beef cattle and burley tobacco farm until 1976-1978 when they began planting apple orchards.
The Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant first opened in 1986 and is run by Stokely Hospitality Enterprises. The restaurant proved so popular that Applewood Farmhouse Grill also had to be constructed on the farm. That restaurant offers a similar menu and downhome hospitality as well.
