Beautiful view, nice drive to the place. We also went a few times last year for the music and that was very lovely. The doughnuts and apple cider are delicious. Beware of prices, if that is a concern for you. It is a tourist attraction so prices are a bit inflated, but hey, support local businesses when you can. Also beware of where you walk on the property, they are particular about staying out of the orchard if you aren’t picking fruit and other areas (this limits you to a rather small space if you are not picking fruit).

Note to staff: I certainly understand the need for an employee parking lot around the back side of the building, but if you do not want people walking close to the trees there please out signage on BOTH sides of the building. I specifically looked to make sure we were not going into a restricted area on the side opposite of the entrance, and only saw a sign restricting the use of tobacco. However my 70 year old mother was very embarrassed when an employee reprimanded us in a rude tone for entering the employees’ parking area. Again, I understand the need for employee parking, but please properly sign the area, or understand that it was a mistake and don’t talk to people as though they are hooligans causing trouble. No one was near the employees’ cars. My mother just wanted to look at the flowers near the peach trees. Sorry if our presence upset anyone, it was not done intentionally. But I hope no one else’s elderly mother gets scolded for taking a stroll.

I was concerned that only some staff wore masks inside their gift shop and none of the ice cream servers wore masks. Customers inside their store were not asked to wear masks and there were no markings in the checkout line to ensure social distancing.I asked one of the customers( who wasn’t wearing a mask) to keep her 6 feet distance and she was offended. There was no enforcement .
The staff were quite standoffish and rude.

Chiles Peach Orchard is a great place for perfect peaches, or depending on the season, apples, strawberries, blueberries, pumpkins, and flowers! The farm shop has various quantities of fruit you can buy, or you may choose to pick your own. They also have peach ice cream, slushies, pie, jam, and other products. Check their website for the growing seasons.

I got to Chiles through Crozet, and I found that route to be the easiest to and from I-64. There's also a great coffee shop right in Crozet, Mudhouse Coffee, which has, along with great coffee, wonderful sandwiches, and the BEST coffee cake...with a crumb topping. I bring a few pieces home to freeze!

Another great place in Crozet is the Crozet Artisan Depot. They have beautiful art from local artisans. There are also vineyards and breweries to visit in the area. All in all, Crozet is a great little town. Note that the amount of time I spent was based on three stops. The orchard alone would only be about an hour (more if you pick your own fruit), incl. driving from the highway.

Chile’s is a wonderful go-to place for seasonal treats. There’s wonderful fruit in the fall, pumpkins at Halloween, fudge all the time, vegetables in the summer, etc. It feels like you’ve gone back a few years in time to a wonderful “mom and pop” experience. They also have family events and wine tasting. My favorite from there are their apples and their peach salsa.

It’s a fun experience. We were there on a warm, sunny day. We picked peaches and apples (Gala). They all were delicious. A tip: pick some peaches that are nearly ripe but firm. By the time we got home (a couple hours away), some were bruised with rotting spots. It’s pricy, but you pay for the experience and a peach or two in the orchard, I guess.

We had a poor experience at Chiles last week. The only peaches they would let us pick were toward the back of the orchard on a very hot day. And after walking a long distance in the heat, when we got to the picking orchard, the vast majority of peaches were on the ground rotting. And the 10 peaches we could find to pick (after passing more than 20-30 bare trees) were also over-ripe and rotting. I don't know what has happened to this place. It's been our go-to for peaches for the last 10 years. And when I told one of the workers about the situation, she said it was my choice to pick instead of buying a basket in the shop. Like, putting it on me that my choice was the problem.

Very nice scenic drive off highway 250. A cute little store to shop in. Rather pricey. Tried the hard cider tasting which was an interesting taste. Did not particularly care for them. It’s an acquired taste. The orchards are beautiful. It’s a quicker attraction if you don’t take the time to pick your own peaches which we didn’t.

We had the opportunity to stop here based on the recommendation during our stay at the Iris Inn in Waynesboro, VA. The staff suggested a trip here while we were our hiking the Blue Ridge Highway area. Chiles did not disappoint! We had the opportunity to grab their delicious Apple Cider donuts (YUM!). We also grabbed a 1/2 a peck of peaches. The Peach Salsa is AMAZING!!!

Easy find nearby Blue Ridge Highway and the Shenandoah National Park.

We came here for the pick-your-own peaches. We picked both varieties available which were the donut peaches and yellow peaches. The orchard is fairly flat and the grass cut back so it's easy to walk compared to Carter's down the road (which is great for apples!). Didn't try the tasting room since I had a young child with me. We did get a cider float and cider donuts which were delicious. I could taste peach in the float but not in the donuts as others have mentioned. Overall, we enjoyed our visit out to the area!

Nice little country store with overpriced peaches. Doesn’t peach ice cream sound good? It did to me but this ice cream was soft serve that had zero peach taste. If you are going to lure people off the main drag for “peaches” at least use peaches! Disappointing.
