We’ve kicked off the 2021 season here in Crozet! Chiles Peach Orchard is now open daily.
Mondays–Saturdays: 9 AM–6 PM
Sundays: 10 AM–6 PM
Warmer Weather Ahead
We loved seeing those pink peach blossoms in full bloom! They even looked beautiful covered in icicles when temperatures dropped down to the 20s. All is well in the orchard, though! We ran under-tree irrigation and operated wind machines during the worst of the nor-easter weather.
Strawberry season is so close we can taste it! We anticipate that strawberries will be juicy, ripe, and ready to pick in early May. Hopefully, some good weather might just ripen them sooner!
For more updates on our upcoming strawberry season, visit our Facebook page.
Our asparagus is starting to come up, and limited quantities will be available starting in mid-April. Asparagus is one of our favorite veggies: try it shaved in a salad or roasted with bacon!
Get Ready to Raise a Glass
We can’t wait to release the brand new Carter Mountain wine label in the Wine Shop later this year!
A Carter Mountain Rosé, Chardonnay, and Petit Manseng are just a few of the locally-crafted vintages that you can look forward to.
