It's Peak of Persimmon SeasonPersimmons are only sold pre-picked.
Please do not tear the fruit from the trees,
or it will damage the trees.
These are a non-astringent variety that
you can eat them like an apple or wait until they are
translucent red orange and eat them with a spoon!

Oodles of Muscadines!Peak of Season in both the Bullis& Scuppernong
For the best results, do the touch test and
make sure they are soft before you pick them.
Still some RazzmatazzBut take your time to be sure you get the dark red ones.
Razzmatazz are a small, seedless muscadine.
Ripe fruit should be dark red.
They are both sweet and tart and
fabulous in pancakes!
Still BlackberriesGood picking in the Fall (primocane) blackberries.
With primocane fruiting, there will be lots of unripe berries amongst the ripe ones.
Take your time to get the ripe ones.
Fruiting will continue until October/frost.
Be a Fig Hunter!Still a few figs, but they are winding down.
You have to be a bit of a Fig hunter, and look for the fruit up and under the leaves.
Best picking is in the mornings.
Mid to late afternoon we clear the ripe figs from the trees.
Figs will likely be done soon.
Fall HoursMonday - Friday: 9 to 5:30
Saturday: 9 to 6
Sunday: Noon to 6
Seedless Grapes & Blueberriesare done for the season.
Open Rain or ShineAnd remember that just because it is raining at your house does not mean it is raining at the farm.
Bring Your Own BucketsWe encourage you to bring your own containers for picking.
Check out our picking tips.
COVID-19We continue to ask anyone coming to the farm to social distance,
and to honor all current COVID protocols.
