Save Crooked Run Orchard


Crooked Run Orchard, a large community-centered farm in Purcellville, VA, is in danger of being gutted to make way for a bypass highway. (Learn more here.) The benefits of the proposed new road are dubious, and Crooked Run Orchard is worth saving. The orchard is more than just a farm but a true site of education and civic engagement. Each year, over 20,000 community members visit  the orchard for hay rides, apple picking, outdoor exploring, and education about agriculture and nature. And Crooked Run has donated over 15,000 lbs. of fresh apples to Bread for the City's food pantry, making them the most active participant in the innovative food rescue program Glean for the City. 

Please join the call to stop this needless development and save Crooked Run! Sign today!
