Rotten road, good product. If you like fresh vegetables and fruit this is the place. I did not find them overly high but then not overly reasonable either

If you are looking for the best view in town it's up here. Cute shop with produce and farm like goods. They also have wine tasting and excellent apple donuts.

Went up to get a view of Charlottesville. It is really beautiful. Also really enjoyed the cider and fresh donuts.

It's a most unusual find: a fully-functioning fruit farm on top of a mountain, approached by an often-dubious track. But do make the drive up there. They grow peaches, apples and all kinds of other wonderful fruit all summer long, and we often come home with bags of it. They also have a "scratch and dent" section if you're buying fruit for making juice or pies. And the view from the top is just spectacular! They are also very nice people. This is definitely worth an hour of your time.

The view from the top is simply outstanding. regardless of the time of year. Well worth the drive up. The apple festival in the fall gets crazy - parking is scarce, people are everywhere and the walk can be lengthy. The people watching is terribly fascinating however if you choose to brave the crowds. But the apples are amazing, as are the apple cider donuts, a truly unique food and delicious food item. They have excellent wine at the top, and places to sit and soak up the gorgeous view of CVille below. Whether you want to wow your guests when they come to town, or just want to experience the beauty of the mountaintop, Carter Mountain Orchard is perfect. There is the opportunity to apple pick yourself, if you are game for that. I have not done that myself, but it does sound like fun! And imagine serving that apple pie with apples you picked yourself! It just doesn't get any better than that. Don't miss it if you are in town, and it's a nice day.
