Black Rock Orchard
Black Rock Orchard is located in Carroll County, Maryland, on the Pennsylvania line. Our claim to local fame is an original Mason Dixon mile marker located in the plums. We work hard to offer a wide variety of tree fruit and berries, including raspberries, sour cherries, gooseberries, blueberries, pluots, apricots, peaches, plums, pears and an insane number of apples varieties, including both traditional and modern cultivars. A customer looking for Stayman Winesap or Ida Red and a customer looking for Pink Lady or Gold Rush apples would be equally satisfied. Specialty greenhouse tomatoes, heirloom peppers and purple pole beans help us extend our season. The owners, David Hochheimer and Emily Zaas, support one family and employ 3 additional full time workers all year. Lindsay Krone is our farm and market manager. You can find Black Rock Orchard at farmers markets in the N. Virginia, DC, Baltimore area, and a few area restaurants.
Cold Country Salmon
Zion Crossroads, VA
Cold Country Salmon is a small scale set net operation fishing the crystal clear blue waters of Bristol Bay Alaska. Local owner/fisherman Zac Culbertson lives just outside of Charlottesville where, when not fishing, he runs a small acreage family farm. Every June hes head to Bristol Bay to fish on the Ugashik river. Our season lasts from mid June til the end of July with the peak occurring in Mid July. While we fish we are constantly selecting the very best of our catch to bring home to sell to our customers throughout Virginia and D.C. The fish that we select are immediately bled on board our skiff, filleted and packed in ice. On shore we immediately package and freeze our salmon. This very special handling process is what sets our fish apart from any other wild caught salmon available on the market. Literally nobody in the industry has such exacting standards. This is why we designate our fish as “Beyond Sushi Grade”.
