The Happy Berry

Last updated October 12, 2018

Wine-Maker Alert
Peak of Season in the Muscadines!

It is peak of season and
peak of sugar in the Muscadines (Bullis)
And they are dripping from the bushes
But only for a couple more weeks.
Scuppernongs (the golden variety) are beginning to slow
These are not the wild tough skinned berries you may think you know. These are dessert quality, pop-in-your-mouth treats, and the skins are loaded with nutraceuticals!

Still Some Figs

Figs continue at a trickle but demand is High.
Best picking is in the morning.
Call first for pre-picked
Read About Picking Figs.

Persimmons Now Available

Persimmons are only sold pre-picked.
This Yummy Fruit is Sweet & Low Acid
At early stages - texture is like an apple
Or let it continue to ripen (they are climacteric)
And eat with a spoon - almost like a pudding.

We love it when you bring your own containers.

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.

Only getting about 3 dozens eggs a day
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!
