Figs - Between Varieties

Picking is Good (am) to Fair (pm).
Brown Turkey are winding up.
Celeste are starting.
Picking will improve again as Celeste ripen.
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

Picking is slowing significantly. Now picking Mars, Joy, Saturn and Venus
Saturn are nearing the end.
Saturn is a crunchy grape- most like what you find in the store.
Joy is a small, dark blue, elliptical shaped grape.
Mars is a more medium sized, dark blue grape.
Venus is back! A new wave of grapes has ripened. Get them while they last.
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 .

Razzmatazz & Oh My

Razzmatazz 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.
Oh My is a new variety of seedless muscadine, yellow or bronze in color.
It is bigger than Razzmatazz but smaller than the Suppernong & Bullis.
Picking is good in the Razzmatazz and just starting in the Oh My.
Like with table grapes, you need snippers and harvest Razzmatazz and Oh My by the bunch.

Scuppernong & Bullis Muscadines

The Bullis (black) and Scuppernong (bronze or golden) muscadines have started.
Picking is slow but should be Good or better by the end of the week (August 19ish).
These muscadines are big and harvested individually.

Blueberries
Only For the Ardent Pickers

It takes 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

Will trickle along until October.
They will not be in clusters.
These are the primacane berries,
and you should find them at the top of the canes.
We no longer have pre-picked blackberries available.

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.

More to Look Forward to - Eventually
We no longer have the Japenese Mulberries (taken out by Sudden Wilt disease),
and the Goji berries did not work out.
We have added Giradia mulberries and Jujubes.
And, as always, we will continue 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!
