I despise GMO's and chemical mutations to food and if you are like me this is the place to go! The apples are delicious, organic and fresh! The farm is huge, the owners and workers are extremely friendly, offering us recipes, advice and inviting us to a local barn yard fundraiser for a town nearby. They made us feel right... More

Mr. Gross and his family offer a wide variety of apples, peaches and other fresh produce in their country store. They also sell canned jams, jellies and relishes. Mr. Gross is usually around, always smiling and willing to give his expert advice on which type of apples you might need for certain recipes. In the spring, they open their farm... More

We attended the 3rd annual Apple Blossom festival. The trees were in bloom and they had music and incredible food available to purchase. They offered wagon rides through the orchard for $3 a person- which was fun. There were tons of vendors offering their wares and then the store was open for business also. The year-round store offers tons of... More

We rented a nearby cabin and the owner recommended this orchard to visit. He said they were a 4th generation family operation. Apples on hand on August 20 were Gala and Honey Crisp, both outstanding, @$24/half bushel. You could pick your own, but only save $4 that way. They were just beginning to pick Red and Golden Delicious, so can't... More

While on vacation in Virginia, we decided we wanted to look for cider at some orchards as we headed up to the Peaks of Otter. After trying a different orchard first that had no cider, we decided to find this place which is a bit more off the beaten path. Boy were we glad we did. They had a bunch... More
