Our 3rd Annual Super Peach Sunday will be held in July, right in prime peach season.  We have varieties of peaches ready for sampling & samplings of our homemade jams, jellies, & butters.  Our peaches, soft serve peach ice cream, peach shakes, & baked goods will be for sale.  A shaded area is provided with entertainment by Benny Dodd & Friends & food provided by our local Ruritan Club.  This year is our first to have a designated kids zone.  We will have outdoor activities for all kids who would like to play while parents enjoy all the peach amenities or parents are welcome to play along.   Call, email, or Facebook us with any questions.

2016 Super Peach Sunday

July 24, 11am-5pm

 

Drumheller’s Orchard has two apple festivals per year.  They always fall on the last weekend in September and the third weekend in October.  We have apples, apple butter, apple cider, honey, side meat, country hams, cookbooks, pumpkins, baskets, baked goods, etc.  Our apple cider is non-pasteurized, which means it’s just the juice from the apple.  There are not any preservatives or additives in the cider.  We have had the same recipe for generations for our apple butter.  We have always made it here at Drumheller’s Orchard.  It has just the right amount of apples, sugar, and spices.  The side meat and country hams are cured in southern Virginia.

This is where the fun comes in!  We have a wide range of activities for all ages, such as hayrides to the pumpkin patch and corn maze, an apple sling shot, and kids zone.  The corn maze is weather permitting.  That implies for the early months also.  If we have a dry summer our corn is likely not to grow, therefore there wouldn’t be a corn maze.  We’re sorry if this happens.  Last but not least there is always food and country music; only on our festival weekends.  Our local Ruritan Club has BBQ chicken, BBQ sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks.  We also have vendors who have funnel cakes, pork skins, apple dumplings, and Brunswick stew.

Please come and join us for a family fun day in the fall!
