Located within the estate is a producing, high density apple orchard consisting of over 308,000 apple trees planted to the five varieties: Buckeye Gala, Aztec Fuji, Vista Fuji, Pink Lady and Honey Crisp.

In addition to apples, the potential exists for high quality wine grape cultivation, other tree fruit, blueberries, vegetable production, and grazing land for livestock. With the close proximity to Lynchburg and other nearby destinations, there are opportunities for agri-tourism, eco-tourism and special events hosting. With plenty of acreage to expand and potential for a vineyard, winery, cidery or micro-brewery and so much more, this is truly a one of a kind offering.
