Virginia Gold Orchard

If you live nearby or happen to be visiting the Rockbridge County area this fall, Virginia Gold Orchard is open to the public for pear tasting and sales from late August until a few days before Christmas.

Please note that due to a severe frost this Spring, the 2016 pear crop was very limited and has already sold out.  

However, we are still selling other fine food products at the Orchard this fall!

  • Local raw honey
  • Our homemade Asian Pear marmalade and topping
  • Chinese dates ("jujubes")
  • Local Blue Hubbard and butternut squash
  • Pumpkins!!


During the harvest season we are open 10 am to 6 pm every day, except Tuesday.

If you are coming with a large group, we ask that please call ahead to make reservations.

When you arrive, feel free to walk around the orchard.  We have a covered picnic pavilion available for picnicking.


The address of the orchard is 100 Asian Pear Way, Natural Bridge, Virginia 24578.

We are located on US 11, about one mile north of Exit 180 on I-81.
