Spring Valley Orchard

Afton, VA

Spring Valley Orchard is a gem! Acres of cherry trees stretch across a valley surrounded on all sides by the bluest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Be sure to watch for our days and hours of operation because cherries wait to ripen when the weather is just right, generally (but not always) around Memorial Day. The season is short—just a few weeks in June—so once they ripen, come get ’em quick!

Weekday Timing Tip

Delicious cherries + a short growing season = crowded weekends. Skip the commotion by coming out on a weekday instead! Put on your walking shoes, buckle in the kids, and drop on by for some scenic and peaceful picking.
