Icicles on peach trees in Crozet

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.

Berry Delicious

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!

April’s Asparagus

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!


Carter Mountain wine being bottled

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.
