Life at the Orchard…
Located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Family Owned and Operated, we’ve been in business since 1965. Our Orchard is located on approximately 40 acres with breath-taking views of the Valley. We grow over 26 varieties of Apples and we press and bottle Our Famous Apple Cider on the premises. It is available in our market from mid-September thru Christmas each year. You can also find it in a number of local shops and groceries. The apple harvest season generally begins in early August and continues thru November.
After a brief rest, Greenhouse Season gets underway in early April. We feature plants that are grown with tender loving care in our greenhouses. We offer a wide selection of vegetable plants, bedding plants, patio planters and perennials. We take pride in the care our plant material receives. In the spring, we offer numerous seminars featuring our highly popular Make it, Take it Container Class. Whenever you choose to visit, be sure to bring your camera so you will be able to capture the beautiful sights of the season!!!
We have over 26 varieties of apples! Try our freshly pressed apple cider, jams, jellies, apple butter and more! Fresh sweet cider available daily during the season! Our cider is flash pasteurized to provide our customers with the safest product possible while maintaining our specially blended Old Fashioned Flavor!
