Carter Mountain Orchard

Pick fruit with the whole family!
What’s more wholesome than piling the family in the car and heading to the countryside to pick fruit. Our abundant countryside lends itself to hours of orchard time. Be sure to plan ahead if you plan to do the picking yourself. Fruit production and picking dates are fickle since rain, frost, and sunshine make a difference in the growing seasons as well as the yield.
We recommend Carters Mountain Apple Orchard near Monticello. In the fall Carter’s Mountain hosts wagon rides and apple activities as well as delicious gourmet apple cider and apple donuts. The picking is plentiful and the scenery is spectacular.
