Hollin Farms (Delaplane, Virginia)
Dates: Generally open Wednesdays through Sundays but check their website here which is updated weekly.
A lovely farm on a hill overlooking more rolling hills in Delaplane. We went here a couple of years ago and it was a great laid-back farm to visit in the Fall. You can pick apples and seasonal vegetables (even dig for potatoes!) or pick your own pumpkin off the vine. From their website: "It is especially important to check this website when you plan to come because we may need to make changes to the hours and days we are open. We provide containers. Please do not bring bags, backpacks, cinch sacks, large purses, coolers, and picnic items into the orchard. Friendly dogs welcome on a leash, but not in the vegetable areas."
