For four generations, Crown Orchard Company has been one of Central Virginia’s most prolific fruit growers, boasting seven major orchards spread over a 15-mile radius. Owned and operated by the Chiles family, the company has many acres of peaches, nectarines, and apples. Crown Orchard is a major wholesale supplier for the region, thanks in part to a state-of-the-art packing facility located in Covesville, Virginia and a full-year staff.

Families throughout the state know Crown Orchard for its famed Carter Mountain Orchard. Set on 200 breathtaking mountaintop acres and featuring a panoramic view of Charlottesville, Carter Mountain has become a multi-seasonal highlight and cherished family tradition for thousands who flock there each and every year.

In addition, Crown Orchard owns and operates Chiles Peach Orchard, located in Crozet and featuring a quality selection of peaches, nectarines, vegetables, apples, cherries and more.
