More than two centuries ago the Lee family began farming in Rappahannock County. Over the years, the family bought and sold land, and what they produce evolved. Yet the Lee’s remained farmers, and now Bryant Lee is joined by two children and a niece in the day-to-day operations of a 600-acre property that includes this historic 40-acre orchard.
While they offer produce, their own honey, cider and many familiar varieties of apples, their property also includes small stands of historic apples that are rarely found today — Albemarle Pippin, Rome Beauty, and Lowry. 14 acres of the orchard are open to the public to pick their own fruit. Or select your apples in the apple house from enormous harvest boxes labeled with the variety
Lee’s is open from 9 to 6 seven days a week during fruit season until the end of October.
During the farm tour weekend, they will host special activities, including a wagon ride through the orchard, face painting and a bake sale of homemade goods using their own apples.
