Our newest item this year is our own farm raised beef. 

Dickie Brothers will offer a wide variety of beef cuts in addition to our fresh fruits.

Our beef is USDA inspected and ready for sale.


We added over 2,000 new dwarf plantings of apples and peaches including Alb. Pippin and Gold Rush as well as white peaches,  These new plantings will continue our tradition of providing a diverse mixture of pre-picked and pick-your-own fruit here at Dickie Bros. Orchard.


Our farm store will be open with lots of fresh fruit from our orchard as well as some local artists' unique designs and creations...  pottery, paintings and crafts.


We will also expand our service area by bringing our harvest to multiple farmers markets. 

Look for us in Lexington on Wednesdays & Fridays and in Staunton and Nellysford on Saturdays.
