Dickie Brothers Orchard


Dickie Bros. Orchard is always filled with 

fresh fruit, friendly smiles and loyal friends gathering 

to enjoy the tastes of harvest.


We hope you will join us this season as well.

A Growing Tradition

Circa 1752

​​​

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


We'll have a Sunflower 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.  It just takes a little time.


We removed some older trees from the orchard and increased peach trees,  This production management will continue our tradition of providing a diverse mixture of pre-picked and pick-your-own fruit here at Dickie Bros. Orchard.


Our retail store, 151 Farm Market, in Afton will have fresh fruit from our orchard as well as some local chef creations including Bashir's Famous Baklava.  Yum.


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

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