As the COVID-19 situation evolves, the safety and health of our customers, employees, and community remain our top priority. We are closely following the guidelines issued by the CDC, including frequent hand-washing, disinfecting surfaces, and social distancing. Our staff has undergone additional training and will continue to abide by new sanitation guidelines when we open our doors.
Chiles Peach Orchard’s 2020 season-opening date is being postponed to April 15. This date is tentative at this time and will be reevaluated as circumstances warrant. As new developments occur, we will adjust our operations and events calendar as necessary. The Hop Into Spring event has been canceled.
In the meantime, our online store remains open for business with gift cards, t-shirts and apparel, and specialty foods. The kitchens are temporarily closed for baked good production but Chiles Family Orchards jams and jellies, apple butter, salad dressings, BBQ sauces, and prepared mixes are as tasty and convenient as ever. We’re currently offering 50% off our standard shipping rates.
On a brighter note, the weather is shaping up for a beautiful spring and the peach blossoms are stunning to see. Since we are not open, we are not able to welcome guests into the farm fields at this time. You may take photos from the roadside.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the orchards when it is safe to do so. Our family has proudly served the Crozet community for generations, and we thank you for your support during these difficult times.
The Chiles Family
