Welcome to Virginia Gold Orchard

"As crunchy as an apple, as juicy as a melon!"


We are currently closed but we will be opening our doors again at the end of August!
Please check back again here or connect with us on Facebook to get announcements.

Virginia Gold Orchard is a family-run farm dedicated to growing the very best tasting Asian pears.  

Asian pears are unique, but what makes Virginia Gold Orchard special is the fact that its pears are considered by many to be the best they have ever tasted. Many other pears - often shipped in from outside the United States - are picked green, days or weeks before they are truly ripe! We always pick our pears at the peak of ripeness, allowing the warm Virginia sun to give our pears their full, unique flavor. We then lovingly pack each box ourselves here at the orchard, by hand, to ensure only the very best pears reach you.

Our pears has been featured in Gourmet and Southern Living magazines, The Washington Post, The Korea Times, and FOX Morning News (see video below).
