The Happy Berry

Last updated July 17, 2021

Seedless Grapes - Open for Picking!

Grape fields are open!
Please bring snippers for harvesting.
Table grapes are harvested in bunches.
The bunch must be cut off from the main stem using snippers.
It is very important NOT to tear bunches from the vine.
Grape vines are easily hurt and damaged.
Check out our Picking Tips for "How to Pick Table Grapes"
Always check in with the staff before going into the fields to pick grapes. Please also always respect the caution tape if you see it in the field. Grapes will visually appear ripe before they are actually sweet and ready to be harvested and we use the caution tape to let you know when areas are not ready yet.

Blueberries - Peak of Season!

Now is the time to fill your freezer!
Blueberries are easy to freeze and
frozen berries are great for
pancackes, muffins, pies, and fruit smoothies!
Blueberries will continue to mid to late August.

STILL Blackberries!

It is still good picking in the blackberries.
Best picking is the early morning,
then, given a chance to recover over the afternoon,
again at the end of the day, after 5.
Steady picking forecasted to early August.
Primocane berries should start early August but the picking will be slower.

Harvest Forecast

Stay tuned for updates!
Figs - August 1
Seedless Muscadines - August 5? Still not sure.
Regular Muscadine (Bullis & Scuppernongs) - mid August
Persimmons - 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.

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.
