A historic Appalachian farm in Ashe County, North Carolina.

 Old Orchard Creek is a historic Appalachian mountain farm, raising blueberries using sustainable farming practices. Come visit and enjoy hiking, star-gazing, magnificent views, in-season blueberry picking, or simply rocking on the front porch. Our cabins are available for rental all year.

Ashe County, the coolest corner of North Carolina, is a beautiful place to explore and offers many activities, indoors and out!

This years’ blueberry season is over. Thank you to everyone who came to pick berries. See you in 2021!

Blueberries are usually available from late June to early August. We are open 7 days a week, 8 AM – 6 PM. The u-pick price is $10 per gallon. If you would like your blueberries ready-picked, call ahead to reserve as ready-picked berries sell out quickly. Local delivery is also available, call us for details.
