Today is a great day for blackberry picking, and since this is probably the next-to-last weekend of the berry season, come on out and pick yours while you can. Tomatoes are also available for U-PIck. We have some FABULOUS pre-picked peaches available in our market, along with red & yellow meat watermelons, sweet cantaloupes, luscious tomatoes, okra, eggplant, peppers, squash, and more, all grown right here on this farm. Closed on Mondays, but open Tues thru Sunday 9am-5pm.
These HUGE blackberries were picked today, and the field is in better shape than we expected after the rains. Lots more of these sweet, tasty berries where these came from. Pickers are out there in regular shoes, but dodging an occasional water puddle on the grassy medians between the rows. The season won’t last much longer, so today is a good day to pick yours while you can. We still have lots of FABULOUS peaches that we picked this morning, so visit our market and stock your freezer.
Farm and market will be open today. UPick thornless blackberries and tomatoes are available for those who don’t mind a little mud, so good idea to wear rubber boots or tennis shoes that can get wet. The berries aren’t as plentiful as they were last week, but still there to pick. Market offers peaches, watermelons, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, and more. Come out and enjoy the cooler weather today!
Farm and Market closed today 6/20/18 due to excessive rain. We hope to open tomorrow as usual. Sorry for any inconvenience. Peaches are still coming in so we should have lots when we can open again. (Peaches are only available for pre-picked, no U-Pick peaches. )
6-14-18 We have delicious pre-picked Freestone peaches for sale in our market for at least the next 2 weeks, weather permitting. Sorry, no U-Pick peaches. Blackberry season has peaked and we should have U-Pick thornless blackberries for about 2 more weeks, so get yours before season ends. We may have some pre-picked blackberries after that, but not for sure when. U-Pick large tomatoes probably only for another 2 weeks, but grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and black cherry tomatoes will probably be around longer depending on the heat. In our market, we offer pre-picked at this time: Watermelons (Red & yellow meat), cantaloupes, spaghetti squash, cushaw, squash, tomatoes, blackberries, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers (burpless & picklers). Hopefully lots of U-Pick figs will be available toward the end of June. Thanks to all who have visited our farm , liked our page, shared our posts, and helped us get the word out that we are open for business!
Just a few of the peaches picked 6-14-18.
