Graves Mountain Apple Harvest Festival
Celebrating Blue Ridge Farmers and their Harvest Offerings
- here on our Farm in Syria, Virginia
This year we need to adapt to Covid and executive order restrictions.
What does that mean?
- A small admission charge and tickets for two separate sessions a day.
- Fewer attendees. Easier to drive in and out. A limit of 1,000 patrons due to the executive order.
Still the same Festival, though.
Lots of apples, pumpkins, gourds, fresh farm cider, Graves Mountain preserves and apple butter, apple butter donuts, funnel cakes, pork rinds, kettle corn, petting zoo with farm animals, hayrides, hay maze, horses, ponies, vendors (limited to 50 this year) of crafts and home made goodies, Brunswick stew, hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, apple pies, festival food, homemade ice cream.
Pick-Your-Own - in the home orchard is FINISHED.
The last bushels were picked today, Oct 11.
LOTS OF PICKED APPLES

But we have PLENTY of apples down at the Apple Packing Shed opposite the Graves Market and Deli in Syria VA, at the crossroads of Rt 670 - Old Blue Ridge Turnpike - and Rt 643 - Weakley Hollow Rd.
