Dickie Brothers Orchard

A Growing Tradition

Circa 1752

What have we been up to?


A lot!


Dickie Bros. Orchard is always filled with 

fresh fruit, friendly smiles and friends gathering at the farm

to enjoy the tastes of harvest.

​​​

The big news is the events center.  Weddings, receptions, parties... oh, my!


We'll have a corn maze at the farm in Roseland this year.


We added a health inspected kitchen at our 151 Farm Market in Afton.  Our PYO area in Afton is growing, but might not be ready for the public until next year.  Just takes a little time.


We removed some older trees from the orchard and planted another 200 dwarf plum 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 store at the farm will have fresh fruit from our orchard as well as some local artists' unique designs and creations...  pottery, paintings and crafts.


We are continuing to bring our products to multiple farmers markets. 

Look for us in Lexington on Wednesdays and in Staunton on Saturdays.
