It's Peak of Persimmon Season

Persimmons 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!
Check out the Persimmon Pudding recipe

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 Razzmatazz

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!

Still Blackberries

Good 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.

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.

EGGS
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!
