The crisp multi-colored rolling Appalachian mountains is home to Carters Mountain, a locally owned orchid.” For over one hundred years, the Chiles Family has been carefully tending its orchards. Beginning with a card table, cigar box, and roadside stand, the first generation of the Chiles Family sold the fruit of their labors to neighbors and folks passing through. Since that time, the orchards have grown to become community favorites and destinations for visitors far and wide. Today, at one time or another, the third, fourth, and fifth generations of the Chiles Family can be found planting, pruning, picking, or otherwise providing fresh produce to Central Virginia and beyond. When you visit, be sure to say hello.” Carter Mountain has been the top tourist orchid in the area. One visitor said “On a clear day you can see forever!! You can have a glass of wine, hard cider or even a snack. The apples are delicious, but the view is spectacular and is worth the short drive up Carters Mountain. The location is very close to Monticello, Michie Tavern, and just outside Charlottesville.”
