This weekend is the Loudoun Fall Colors Farm Tour! We will be offering PYO apples, pumpkins (these are already picked for you), and a local fresh meat producer will be on hand, too! We’ve got a great selection of small gourds and squash – guaranteed to be a hit!
We will be open for PYO each day from 9:00 am to 6pm. Because we will be closing promptly at 6pm, we ask that you time your visit to arrive no later than 5:30 pm for picking. Please keep in mind that picking pressure can outpace the availability of ripe fruit, some come early.
In other news, the town of Purcellville began marking the centerline of their proposed roadway through our property. They plan to do a ‘quick take’ of our property and in the process they will carve up our farm, destroy our barn, and demolish over 40 mature fruit trees. Click here to view the town council members and send them an email saying NO ROAD THROUGH OUR FARM! We’d like to offer a very heartfelt THANK YOU to the many folks who have taken the time to email the Town of Purcellville. Please keep your messages of support coming, and don’t forget to CC: us in, too!
Apples picked from the trees are $1 a pound, and if you’re making apple sauce you can collect dropped apples for 50 cents a pound. Pumpkins are 45 cents per pound, the same as last year. We will also have fresh herbs: sage, oregano, lemon balm, rosemary that you can ask for. We don’t precut it because we don’t want it to dry out. We also have the unusual Bolivian herb called Quilquina (it’s a papalo). We might be the only farm on the east coast to be offering it! We also have about four or five mints that we would be glad to share and for those people who are really into good herbal teas, some hyssop. Please call us at (540)338-7445 before you leave home to let us know which herbs you’re interested in.

Crooked Run NEVER charges an admission fee, and parking is always free, too. You pay only for what you pick, or pick up from our stand. No dogs, please, due to sanitary reasons. We have several picnic tables that you’re welcome to enjoy with your family… see you at the orchard!
