Welcome to the 2020 season! It has not officially started for us, and already it is a complicated one! As we were watching updates from the governor and discussing how we might consider "social distanced peach and apple picking," we were hit with a late freeze. Usually late freezes help us naturally thin the fruit, but this one was brutal. It killed about 98% of our crop (peaches and apples). We are in the process of brainstorming ways to salvage this season so that we have the funds to carry us through until next season. PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR SURVEYS AND INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WE CAN OFFER THIS YEAR. We are grateful for your continued support!
Survey #1: Stribling Beef
We are the sixth generation of Striblings to farm this land, and we are proud of the fruit our family has grown for the last 200 years. Our peaches are available from mid-July through mid-August and our apples from mid-August through early November. Beginning in September, we offer fresh cider and all sizes and shapes of pumpkins.
Come and enjoy a day in the country at our orchard. Relax, bring a picnic, and enjoy our breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come see our historic buildings, visit our many farm animals, and pick some of Virginia's finest fruit.
Stop by our Harvest House where we have cider, honey, jams, jellies, salsas, hot sauces, local cheese, local eggs, Virginia peanuts, cookbooks, fresh baked goods and more.
Thank you for visiting our web site. We hope to see you soon at the orchard!
