Join us for fresh apple cider, an apple turnover, fresh roasted Virginia chestnuts and some memorable family and friends conversations.

Dickie Bros. Orchard is always filled with 

fresh fruit, friendly smiles and friends gathering at the farm

A Growing Tradition

Circa 1752

Dickie Brothers Orchard


Last year, 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 800 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 store at the farm was open with lots of 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.
