Carter Mountain is a really fun place to visit. You can pick fruit, visit the gift shop, buy fresh cider and more! In the fall they have handmade apple cider donuts. Kid and pet friendly for a fun family outing!

Busy with lots of people. Difficult to find a place to sit to have what food they offer and listen to the music. Best to come up for apple picking.

This is a great place to take the children, especially in the apple season. You can buy apples by the pound or the bushel. There is room for the kids to run and explore. Summer fruit and veggies are also available in season. Do not forget to admire the view of C-ville and all from atop the hill.

I love to go here when I visit family in Charlottesville and have been many times. The views from the top of the orchard are great. I love the apples and it smells so good in the store too. It's something fun and different to do.
