Years ago, our Web Developer Joe Carey designed a website for Apple Hill Orchard located south of Morganton, NC. Recently, Joe got an e-mail from the owner Harley Prewitt asking that we update his site with a new look and added functionality.
Harley and his family have built a thriving business from their apple orchard and regularly draw upwards of 800 visitors on Saturdays during apple season. Many of these visitors are from outside of Burke county, so his website plays a crucial role in bringing visitors to the orchard. It was important that we provide a site that is user friendly, easy to navigate and looks great!
For their new website, we created a fresh design with colors pulled straight from the orchard. The site is built on a content management system that allows Harley to manage his website making updates and adding content. A scrolling news ticker at the top of the page shows the latest news from his blog. The newsletter signup form is part of a self-contained newsletter system, complete with double opt-in and unsubscribe functions, that allows Apple Hill Orchard to create and send their own newsletters.
We believe this new site will serve the orchard for several years. We appreciate the return business and are excited to be connected with another successful local business in Burke county.
