Apples, peaches, nice store. Wine and liquor tastings and sales? BBQ? We visited this place on a run, so I apologize for the lack of info. Go for the view.

This orchard is a delite. Not only do they sell fruits, but also many additional items. I bought a bag of drums for apple or peach crisp. It’s hard to resist the quality fruit. I hope to return.

A great little stop with breathtaking views! They offer a little bit of everything in their gift shop and their apple cider was amazing!

Less than a mile from Monticello, Carter Mountain Orchard is a perfect place to re-group, relax, and enjoy the beautiful views. Try a real high-powered apple cider and grab a seat outside and soak in God's beauty.

Enjoyed a near-sunset wine tasting with the friendly staff here and took our selections out onto the deck to watch the clouds play over Charlottesville and the hills. Heaven!

No animals. You might see deer, wild turkey, raccoons, possum or other animals native to the area, but unless they have a petting zoo event etc. there are no animals there as part of the attraction.

There is no fee, just the cost of the apples you pick. The cost depends on the type of apples you pick but is slightly less than what you'd pay in the stores.
