Temporary closure due to heat wave.
Due to EXTREME HEAT WAVE, we will be closed AT LEAST the rest of this week (Tues. 7/12/22 THROUGH Sun. 7/17/22). Will post here when the heat wave ends and we can open up again. The Celeste fig season is over—the trees threw most of the Celeste figs off before they ripened, probably as a self-preservation tactic. The other varieties (LSU Gold, LSU Purple, Magnolia) are not so temperamental, and hopefully we will have those for U-Pick when they are ripen soon. The next varieties of peaches are still ripening, and heat doesn’t seem to bother them, so keep your fingers crossed for more peaches to come! Blackberry season is over. Scuppernong Muscadine grapes are still ripening, so stay tuned for grape season coming in late July. We are irrigating the vegetable and flower fields to have those for U-Pick when we open back up. This mid-season closure is unprecedented for us, but so is this extreme heat. The safety of our staff and customers is our primary concern, and we hope you understand. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
