The Orchard

Throughout the year, we grow more than 25 varieties of apples, multiple types of peaches and assorted vegetables. We offer pick your own as well as already picked product and invite our guests to stroll through the grounds, picnic and enjoy our beautiful views. We also have our Old Hill Cider tasting room with retail sales as well as a local farm store. Our hours are 9-5 Monday – Saturday.

We offer the opportunity to pick your fruit throughout the harvest season, typically beginning in early August and finishing up in late October. The apple varieties frequently change as each type of apple ripens on the trees. Our pricing is by volume (measured in bushels).  You choose a measured bag in denominations of 1/2 peck, peck, 1/2 bushel, and bushel.  When your bag is level full, you will have picked the given amount. You can always call us at (540) 896-7582 to see what is available to pick and purchase. Below you will find our general outline for harvest dates as well as additional information on specific types of apples.
