  • Fruit Pies of all sorts, Preserves of every flavor, vegetables, cider, wonderful craft items, and much, much more.  more »
  • They grow many varieties of each fruit. Instead of just going to a market to buy peaches, we know to stock up on Sunhigh and Contender peaches in late July and early August because they are our favori...  more »
  • Excellent selection of fruit pies, jellies and jams. Well worth a visit. Minimum credit card purchase is $10.  more »
  • Catoctin Mountain Orchard is a neat place. During the harvest, they offer pick-your-own-apples options, and more or less everything they sell, from fresh apples, cider, and pies to various salad dressings, sauces, and cookies, are made on-site. Plan your trip carefully! They're closed during the off-season, starting in late January. They're a little pricey, and they have a minimum purchase for credit cards, but they're worth every penny! They even have a playground for the kids. Only real negative is the tiny parking lot with a single, challenging entrance, but there is unpaved overflow parking attached to the paved lot, and the entrance is off a side road (as opposed to directly off the highway - much safer in and out).
  • Pick your own fruit! Fresh, delicious fruit. The store has many tasty treats as well. Nice people working there to assist you.
  • Fun local fruit stand. Sweet, juicy, fresh apples. Good variety of pumpkins. Pick your own apples and pick your own flowers options available. Spicy aromas of fresh baked pies. Good array of local produce. Only complaint is inability too buy single fruits.
  • Really nice place. Family friendly and accessible. They have a park for kids and a lot of nice places to take pictures. Lots of baked good and fruits and veggies.
  • Fantastic food, cider, etc! Everyone who works there is very helpful too. But it gets super crowded because it's so awesome
