OnScene: Carter Mountain Orchard

From 1722 until his death in 1742, a man named John Carter served as the Secretary of the Virginia Colony. In 1729, he obtained over nine thousand acres of land through a grant. This land encompassed a mountain in what is now the city of Charlottesville, Virginia. To this day, the land is called Carter Mountain. It is here that beautiful Carter Mountain Orchard sits.

Forty-Five Years of Carter Mountain Orchard

Since 1974, this lovely orchard has welcomed visitors from all over who enjoy their delicious fruit, shop at the cozy country store and take in breathtaking skyline views. Visiting the orchard has become a yearly tradition of mine and many others’. Each visit leaves me feeling closer to nature and the people around me, as part of the perfect fall adventure.
