My Love of Carter Mountain Orchard

Carter Mountain orchard 2

One of my favorite day trip places in Virginia is the Charlottesville region. I have featured numerous locations in the Charlottesville area on past blog posts. One of them is Carter Mountain Orchard. This past weekend I was able to make a quick return visit as it is Apple Season in Virginia.

Their Facebook post about the Jonagold Apples made me decide to stock up on apples! I was able to pick up an assortment of apples including the Jonagold Apples. I use various types of apples in my fresh salsa! You can read about the Jonagold apples in the photos below.

Nothing compares to the view from the top of Carter Mountain Orchard. Even on a mostly cloudy day like Saturday, the lush green mountainsides gave way for amazing views in every direction. For those that have never been there, follow them on Facebook for all their events and postings of what they have ready for picking in season. They also have a wonderful country store & bakery, the Mountain Grill, Prince Michel Wine Shop in the attached building and Bold Rock Cellar is downstairs on the back side of the building with incredible views!
