Razzmatazz Peak of Season

But 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!

Bronze Muscadines Are In

Pretty Good Picking in the Bronze (Scuppernong)
The Bullis (Black) Muscadines just beginning.
Pick slow and make sure they are soft.
Picking is slow.

Be a Fig Hunter!

Figs are steady. About 10 gallons ripening per day.
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.
Check out our latest newsletter for more details.
Figs will slow in a couple of weeks but
continue until late September.

Seedless Grapes
At the End

There are still a few to pick and we still have some in the cooler.
But call first (864-508-6939 Farm Phone) if you are making a special trip,
to make sure we have not sold the last of them.
Don't forget snippers for harvesting!
It is very important NOT to tear bunches from the vine.
Check out our Picking Tips for "How to Pick Table Grapes"
Please check in with staff before going into the grape fields and respect the caution tape if you see it in the field.
We use the caution tape to let you know when areas are not ready yet.

Blueberries - About Done

No More Pre-Picked Blueberries available On Farm
Picking conditions are difficult
and only for the dedicated searcher.
You will have to scout and look up under the bush canopy.

Still Blackberries

Getting about 4-6 gallons to pick / per day
Only in the Primocane.
There will be berries, but there will be lots of unripe berries amongst the ripe ones.
Fruiting will continue until October/frost.

Persimmons On Deck

Please Do Not Pick the Persimmons
They are starting to show color
but they are still several weeks away from ripe!
Persimmons - forecast mid September

Open Rain or Shine

And remember that just because it is raining at your house does not mean it is raining at the farm.

Bring Your Own Buckets

We encourage you to bring your own containers for picking.
Check out our picking tips.


We continue to ask anyone coming to the farm to social distance,
and to honor all current COVID protocols.

Part-Time Jobs

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.

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!
