Dickie Bros. Orchard
The "Apple Cider Express" at Dickie Brothers Orchard.
Join us for fresh apple cider, an apple turnover, fresh roasted Virginia chestnuts and some memorable family and friends conversations.
Dickie Brother's 2021 season is filled with
fresh fruit, friendly smiles and gathering at the farm
to enjoy the tastes of harvest.
We added cold storage at our 151 Farm Market in Afton which allows us to store more inventory. We also planted blueberries in our PYO area in Afton.
We removed some older trees from the orchard and planted another 2,000 dwarf apples and peach trees, 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.
