Open Rain or Shine
And rain at your house does not mean it is raining here...
Still Good Picking in the Table (seedless) Grapes
But they will be gone soon.
Now picking Saturn and Mars, but we think they will be gone by next week
Please review How to Pick Grapes
Figs Have Begun (finally!)
Picking time is improving- and will continue to improve over the week
If you have not tried a fresh fig- you don't know what you are missing!
Still Some Blueberries
Picking time per gallon is still high but there are blueberries out there to pick
We will continue to have some blueberries through late August
but we no longer have pre-picked blueberries either on farm or at the market.
See our Current Conditions for details!
Muscadines - Coming Soon
Like the figs, the muscadines are taking longer to come in than we had anticipated
Forecast - Maybe a week away? Stay Tuned
Just a LITTLE BIT of Blackberries
The new Everbearing variety of blackberry is yielding just a few blackberries.
Only 2-3 quarts a day as a total.
The rest of the blackberries are pruned and done for the year.
(Like the blueberries, we no longer have pre-picked available.)
Have your own buckets? Please bring them!
We welcome & invite you to bring your own buckets. Ones with handles work best.
Of course, if you don't have them, we will supply them for you
(and maybe you can bring those back the next time you come)

Farm to Table- Raising a Pig for Harvest
Some of you may know that we raised and harvested a pig for our first time early Spring 2012.
It was quite an experience. Walker wrote up the experience - inluding several pictures of the process- and you can read about the harvest process if you are interested.
We appreciate your support and
We would not be here without YOU!
Come see Us! Anytime!
