Spring Valley Orchard
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!

Cherries Ripen in June
Cherry season is short and sweet, generally starting in late May or early June and ending before July. Mother Nature is unpredictable: fruit availability depends on weather conditions.
