MEET THE TEAM
Brook is CFO and business manager, although you can find him involved in new projects all over the orchard with his dog Kevin in tow.
You can always find Steele on his tractor with his new pup (Boss) riding shotgun. When Steele's not directing equipment operations, he's in the shop finding solutions to complex mechanical issues.
Jacquelyn is Head Cider and Wine Maker at Henley's Orchard Estate Cidery. Her knack for innovation and design drives business development. When Jacquelyn's not at the orchard, you'll find her at the horse barn, where she runs Central Va Horse Boarding, teaches horseback riding, raises goats and calves, and some very spoiled chickens and ducks.
FAMILY RUN SINCE 1932
Henley's Orchard is located in beautiful Crozet, VA, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just west of Charlottesville.
The orchard was established in 1932 by Joseph T. Henley, Sr. He earned a degree in agriculture and was Virginia’s first fruit inspector.
Joe originally purchased the land, 5 acres, for use as an apple orchard and, over the next 28 years, he was able to purchase more acreage to expand the apple orchard, establish a peach orchard, start a herd of cattle, and grow many acres of hay.
The farm and orchard was passed on to Joe’s son, Joseph T. Henley, Jr., who further expanded the operation, and then it passed on to his grandson, Tim Henley.
Today, Tim and his wife, Sarah, run the orchard with their children, Jacquelyn, Brook, and Steele. Tim and Sarah expanded the wholesale market to Richmond and Harrisonburg and have upgraded their retail sales location, which is known as “The Shed.”
