Welcome to the Historic Orchard at Altapass!
Join us in our mission to preserve, protect and educate the culture and the land of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The mission of the Altapass Foundation, Inc. is to preserve the history, heritage and culture of the Blue Ridge Mountains; protect the underlying orchard land with its apples, wetlands, butterflies, and other natural features; and educate the public about the Appalachian experience. Altapass Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public non-profit and depends on the generosity of donors to fund programs that support this mission.
