ON MAY 27TH OUR FARM WAS HIT BY A DEVASTATING HAILSTORM THAT LASTED A VERY LONG 5 MINUTES. AT THAT TIME THE PEACHES AND APPLES WERE SMALL ON THE TREES AND THERE WASN'T MUCH PROTECTION FROM THE LEAVES YET.
YOU WILL SEE HAIL DAMAGE ON MOST OF OUR APPLES AND PEACHES THIS YEAR. OF COURSE, IN THE FARM MARKET WE HAVE SORTED OUT THE WORST LOOKING CUTS AND BLEMISHES. THESE SMALL BLEMISHES ARE COSMETIC AND WILL NOT AFFECT THE TASTE OF THE FRUIT OR THE SHELF LIFE. WE JUST WANTED EVERYONE TO BE AWARE THAT WHAT YOU SEE IS ALL NATURAL AND THAT IT WAS "KISSED" BY MOTHER NATURE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, OUR STAFF WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER THEM.
Relax while sitting on the front porch in our rocking chairs and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. Or go on an adventure, by purchasing containers and going out to pick your very own fruits and vegetables (check for availability throughout the season). We have many picnic tables, so feel free to pack a lunch or purchase food from our food building when it is open (every weekend July-October).
PET POLICY: Dogs are not allowed inside the farm market but are welcome on the rest of the property. Please make sure they are on a leash at all times and provide cleanup when needed.
Family Fun and Treats for Your Tastebuds!
Inside the market there are a variety of products to choose from and don't forget to check out our bakery and the apple cider donuts. Wrap up your visit with a stop by our "Sweets Shop" where you can get fudge, hand dipped ice cream, or fruit slushies.
On our playground you will find a large play set (with climbing wall, jungle gym and slide), a play set for the "smaller tots", spring rides, a large ship, a tractor and wagon, a castle, a climbing dome, and a helicopter.
Currently the orchard consists of 325 acres of apples and 15 acres of peaches (yellow, white and donut). We have several different varieties of plums and have recently planted 5 acres of pears.
Home Baked Goodness!
Visit our farm market bakery and get your fill of sweets to eat. We offer a wide variety of baked goods daily including our famous Apple Cider Donuts. Some items may be seasonal or by special request only.
Home Grown Goodness
We also grow damsons and apricots which are often hard to find in Virginia. Peaches and plums are available from July 4th through Labor Day. Pick-your-own (P-Y-O) apples begin September 1st.
