The Happy Berry

Last updated August 6, 2022

Figs - Lots & Lots of Figs!

It is Peak of Season for figs.
and the best picking will be over the next two weeks.
Best picking will always be in the morning.
Mid to late afternoon is when we send the pickers to clear the trees
and restock our pre-picked inventory.
Check out our fig picking tips.

Seedless Table Grapes

Now picking Mars, Saturn, Hope & Joy
Hope is a green grape- which makes determining "ripe" a little bit more challenging.
Saturn is a crunchy grape. Joy is a dark blue, elliptical shaped grape.
Please do not "tear" grapes from the vines, as that opens wounds and opens them to disease.
Grapes require using snippers.
Please check out our picking tips .

Blueberries Winding Down

Picking time is up significantly.
It takes a little scounting and you have to look down, in and under the bushes.
We no longer have pre-picked blueberries available.

Blackberries - Still at a Trickle

Picking time is increasing
Just like with the blueberries, you have to scout for berries,
and you have to hunt for them - down in and under the bushes.
We no longer have pre-picked blackberries available.

Razzmatazz are in!

Razzmatazz seedless muscadines have started.This is a seedless muscadine, much smaller than the the Bullis (black) and Scuppernong (bronze or golden) muscadines.
Ripe fruit should be dark red. They are both sweet and tart.
Still forecasting mid- to late August for Scuppernong & Bullis

Persimmons

Persimmons are looking good

CAUTION - Please wear shoes with good tread.
Please no sandles or flip flops. The terrain is uneven, and in places, sometimes steep. Please wear shoes with good tread for walking around the farm. See our Picking Tips

Speed limit is 6 miles per hour....
For your own safety as well as others -
Please drive slowly and carefully.

BYOB – Bring-your-own-bucket
We love it when you bring your own buckets. If you have extra plastic buckets or quart cups, we would welcome these donations to the cause.  We can wash and sanitize them and they will be "good to go" for another round.

Parking Tips 
We ask our workers to park at the top of the driveway in order to save parking down near the old farm house for you!  That means that seeing cars at the top does not mean you have to walk in.  If we are really crowded we will have someone at the top to direct parking.  With that said, please note that trailers or RV types of vehicles must park at the top of the driveway in the first parking area.  They should not be taken down to the house because there is not enough room to turn them around.

Preferred method of payment
We love Cash!  We also accept checks, and Visa or Mastercard debit/credit cards.  We are hoping that you will all continue to use cash or checks as much as possible. 

We are now mobile-friendly!
In 2016 we posted our new mobile friendly website. Please let us know if you find any bumps! We would love your input.

Dog Policy
Please leave your pets at home.
We love dogs but it is best not to bring dogs to the farm. We cannot allow dogs in the fields and the parking area is too hot to leave pets in the car. If you cannot avoid having your dog with you, please plan for a member of your group to stay with the dog; stay out of the fields (no one wants berries that were...ah..sprayed); carry doggie bags for the unmentionable; and keep the dog on a 6 foot (or shorter) leash.

EGGS
Please call first if you are making a special trip-

More to Look Forward to - Eventually
We have added Goji, mulberries and even planted more Persimmons. They have not come on-line yet.
We have also planted more fig trees since we seem to consistently have more demand than supply.
And, as always, we will be tinkering with ways we can lower our impact on the environment,
up our harvest productivity, maintain profitability so we can stay in business
and better serve our community.
Ask Walker for details and/or Stay tuned for updates!
