Carter Mountain Orchard

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Carter Mountain Orchard, located next to Michie Tavern and mere minutes from Monticello, is open mid-April through November (and weekends in December).

The fun starts in the spring with our annual Easter Egg Hunt, apple blossom time, Spring Fling, and the chance to check out the view early in the year. In the summer, you can head up the hill and pick-your-own tree-ripened peaches, or purchase Ready-Picked fruit in our market. You'll also find nectarines, white-fleshed peaches, fresh local veggies, and summer apples - perfect for applesauce and cooking. Be sure to stop by our Bakery for peachy donuts, and lots of ice cream to cool off!

As summer fades, the action heats up on the mountain with the mid-August start of our spectacular apple season. Pick Your Own, or buy fresh picked in the Apple Barn, all the way through December. You'll find a dozen varieties including Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Granny Smith, Winesap, Fuji, and Pink Lady, among many. We also offer fresh-pressed Apple Cider, Aunt Sarah's Bakery with home-made apple cider donuts (a runaway hit year after year), fresh-baked apple pies, apple caramel cookies, hand-dipped ice cream, and delicious lunch foods in the Mountain Grill.

When autumn hits full swing in October, Carter Mountain hits its peak with more apples than you can imagine, as well as pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, and classic hayrides around the gorgeous property. An autumn visit to Carter Mountain is a staple on family calendars throughout the state. We look forward to welcoming you, or welcoming you back, to join in the fun.

A trip to Carter Mountain Orchard is not complete without a stop in our Country Store - it's brimming with local crafts, gourmet food products, apple butter, jams and jellies, beautiful gift items, and more. Forget something when you visited? Wish you had picked up more apple butter? Check out our online store to have your favorite Carter Mountain products delivered right to your door!
