The Virginia Apple Growers Association is dedicated to promoting the Virginia Apple Industry by providing information and resources for growers and consumers.

Virginia is the sixth largest apple producing state in the country, with production from Southwest Virginia through the Central region and up to the Northern Shenandoah Valley. We produce a wide variety of apples for fresh consumption as well as processing. Our industry features growers who sell apples domestically and internationally as well as many pick your own operations, and farmers markets. Virginia is known for the outstanding apple harvest festivals in the fall. Additionally, Virginia produces many value added products including apple cider, apple sauce and apple butter. Virginia is also home to a growing hard cider industry, now featuring over 20 producers selling their product in state as well as throughout the United States.
