About Us

Located in beautiful Nelson County, Virginia, Saunders Brothers grows quality peaches, apples, Asian pears, vegetables, flowering shrubs, annuals and perennials.  You can find these products and much more at our retail Farm Market, located just five miles from our orchard in Piney River.

Stop by and stock up on local produce, try our mouth-watering peach ice cream, and visit our onsite farm antique museum! We offer something for everyone. Enter our site to learn more!

Our Orchard
In response to market demands, Saunders Brothers started growing super tree-ripened peaches; including sub-acid white- fleshed peaches, many of which get great size, color, and flavor. These peaches complement the yellow-fleshed varieties and extend the season from June 15 until late September.

While oversupply has forced us to reduce production of many "commodity" type apples, like Red Delicious, Rome, and Golden Delicious, we continue to see strong demand for speciality varieties like Gala from New Zealand, Fuji from Japan, and Pink Lady from Australia.

Our Farm Market
Our Farm Market offers a fun place for the whole family to enjoy. Not only can you find a variety of peaches, apples and vegetables from May through November, but we also offer ciders, jams, relishes, and salsas. While you're here, visit our on-site museum; one of the largest privately-owned collections of farm antiques in the state of Virginia.
