Welcome to Levering Orchard, celebrating its 112th year in 2020. Yes, we are open again this year, with new guidelines to keep everyone safe. Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outdoors, getting away from crowded places, and buying fresh, local fruit is a great experience for the family. It’s fun, safe, and educational for children and adults alike to spend time on this beautiful mountain.
Owner Frank Levering continues the tradition started by his grandparents, Ralph and Clara, and parents, Sam and Miriam. In addition to apples, peaches, pears and apricots, Levering Orchard features 32 acres of cherry trees with an amazing 56 varieties to choose from — imagine! We call it Cherry Mountain. Ours is the largest and most beautiful cherry orchard in the South, with the greatest selection of cherries in the United States.
