Our apple season is beginning to wind down. We will be open this Wednesday though Sunday (Oct. 13-17) from 9-5 each day. We have limited amounts of Yorks and Granny Smith on the trees for picking. We also have pre-picked Nittany, Fuji, Golden Delicious, Rome, and Stayman. In addition we are now offering ground apples for 75 cents/lb or $50 for a truckbed. Ground apples are great for cooking, making cider, making applesauce, slicing up and freezing, deer, etc.
This weekend (Oct. 16-17), the bakery will be offering the following items only: apple pies (regular top and crumb top), pie slices, apple cakes, white bread, and apple raisin bread while supplies last. The snack shack will be open for lunch both days and the following vendors will be here: Whistle Pop Kettle Corn, caramel apples, Cobbler Mountain Cider, Chateau O'Brien, and C&C Ice Cream (on Sunday only).
There is lots of product left in the store - stock up on your apple butter! These make great hostess and holiday gifts! We will be selling beef through the 17th as well. Stay tuned for more beef information - we will be offering the purchase of beef bundles with pick up at the orchard on specific days leading up to the holidays!
Don't forget that we are also now selling beef. Please click on "Stribling Beef" above and then "Order Here." We will also have beef available on site for purchase.
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!
