Hello from MacGregor Orchard!
Allow us to introduce ourselves! We are the new owners of MacGregor Orchard (formerly Perdeaux Fruit Farm). Our names are Stephens & Julia Gregory. We have two amazing sons, Dilland and Walker Gregory.
Stephens is a proud descendant of the MacGregor Clan in Scotland so we named the Orchard after his heritage. He has 30 years of experience working in agriculture and has always loved the outdoors and nature. We already own Glassy Mountain View Farm, where we raise Black Angus cattle and vegetables. It’s about a mile from the orchard.
We are thrilled we had the opportunity to purchase the farm from Dick Perdue. MacGregor Orchard will continue to make the delicious recipes you have come to love over the years. We are happy to say that Jill, Alyssa, and Frankie will continue working with us. They are truly a blessing!
As you all know Mr. Perdue is a wealth of knowledge and he will continue to bestow it upon us as an advisor for the next couple of years, so don’t be surprised to see him still around.
Since we have purchased the orchard we increased “nature’s” work force on the property by bringing 30 bee hives to full working order to help with pollination and to provide you with local honey.
As a family-owned orchard, we are proud to be able to share our hard work with you by raising a crop in which you can taste the love. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see photos and videos from the orchard.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family! It is honor to provide our products to you.
Stephens and Julia Gregory

2019 Fruit Crop Overview
Peaches & Nectarines: The crop is loaded this year and they look great.
Plums & Prunes: The crop is heavy and they look great. We lost very little to a late freeze.
Apples: We lost some fruit from late freeze but it was a good thinning for the trees. All in all the apples look good.

Muscadines: The crop is just getting started but looks great.
