Modern growing techniques in the orchard use dwarf trees with the newest varieties of apples available.
Dwarf trees mean that even the youngest children can pick their own apples because the trees are small. We grow more than a dozen varieties of apples including Macoun, Mutsu, Gala, Fuji, Empire, Honeycrisp, Snap Dragon, Cortland, McIntosh, Ida Red, Rome, Red and Golden Delicious, Braeburn and Granny Smith. Many people enjoy picking our Bosc pears, too. We have recently added Asian pears to our orchard. This very popular fruit usually ripens about the end of September.

July brings sweet and sour cherries as well as our certified organic raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. Late July and August mark the harvest of juicy, tree-ripened peaches and nectarines as well as an extensive variety of heirloom tomatoes and eggplants.

Lester, his son, and Marie, his daughter-in-law, helped him load those peaches in a truck and drove to St. Louis. Unfortunately, they did not realize that the market wanted greener fruit and they did not receive a good price. But Rollin and Lester believed tree-ripened peaches had the best and most appeal.

Albemarle Cider Works & Vintage Virginia Apples
2545 Rural Ridge Ln, North Garden, VA 22959
At Albemarle Cider Works and Vintage Virginia Apples, you won’t find your average pick-your-own orchard. They have a fascinating philosophy and vision for their orchard business, which is explained in detail here.
“Vintage Virginia Apples was founded in 2000 by the Shelton family. In our orchard, we grow a variety of tree fruits that are becoming increasingly rare. Many of these are older varieties that have fallen into obscurity or just do not fit the needs of today’s commercial marketing and distribution systems. We began by planting a small array of interesting apples, which has grown now to more than 200 different cultivars, both heirloom and more recent varieties. We have also experimented with growing a variety of other fruits including peaches, pears and plums. Our nursery has grown from this love of vintage varieties, which we aim to share with like-minded orchardists by offering over 100 varieties of fruit trees from our collection through our fall/winter catalog which we post online each fall. Many of these varieties are virtually unobtainable elsewhere.
While apples are our primary focus here at Rural Ridge Orchard, we also enjoy growing for our own use other tree fruits that have merit and distinction and are difficult to find today. For the connoisseur, seeking them out is rewarding and worthwhile. Our enthusiasm has led us to collect pears that we think may grow well in the mid-Atlantic, peaches, plums, apricots, quince and the old Black Heart Cherry which is almost impossible to find these days. We propagate a selection of these fruits every year to sell to the discriminating enthusiast as well as our apples.
Many of these do not ship well, have a relatively short shelf life or other attributes that make them difficult to fit into the industrial agricultural system and mass distribution food market that dominates our food chain supply these days. The efficiency of this pattern is unparalleled and as a nation, we eat better and more cheaply than virtually anywhere in the world. Yet the price we pay is the decline of many of the special and varied flavors that come from plums such as the Green Gage and peaches like George IV, White Champion, Peregrine, and Elberta. We sell these fruits at the farm in season. They are often in very limited supply. “
Spring Valley Orchard
3526 Spring Valley Rd, Afton, VA 22920
“Spring Valley Orchard is a gem! Acres of cherry trees stretch across a valley surrounded on all sides by the bluest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Be sure to watch for our days and hours of operation because cherries wait to ripen when the weather is just right, generally (but not always) around Memorial Day. The season is short—just a few weeks in June—so once they ripen, come get ’em quick!
Cherries are more perishable than their berry counterparts; we recommend refrigerating them as soon as possible after picking. There’s no need to wash cherries before putting them in the fridge. In fact, washing cherries makes them more likely to spoil!
Sweet cherries keep longer when you leave the stem attached. Don’t fret if the stem comes off when you’re picking, just make sure to eat those cherries first!
Even the best cherries will only keep for a few days in the fridge, so make sure to eat or freeze them as soon as possible after picking.”
