Went to Heartland Orchard in Markham Virginia yesterday for pick your own tart cherries. The orchard was full of ripe and almost ripe cherries. No need for a ladder yesterday -- if you go later this week, you may want to bring a stepstool or ladder. Harvest may last through next weekend. No admission fee & cherries are $2 per pound.

There are a couple of farms and orchards that are run by the same family: Hartland Orchards, Hartland Farm & Orchards, and Green Truck Farm. I have had good experiences at all of their locations.

Believe it or not, there are two communities of Markham, Virginia - Heartland Orchard is in Fauquier County, and the other is in Pittsylvania County.

Fauquier County was founded in 1759, and named after Francis Fauquier, Lieutenant-Governor of Virginia Colony.

Pittsylvania County was founded in 1767, and named after William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham.
