For all you canners out there, we also offer some of our produce in bulk during certain times of the year, including: tomatoes, okra, green beans, and cucumbers- Just be sure to call ahead for bulk orders.
If it can be grown here, we've tried it. For our customers, produce season is late March through July.
For us, the new crop year literally begins the day after we close the store for the season. Harvested fields are immediately plowed and soil preparation for next season's crops begins. Throughout the year, we make several tons of homemade compost, much of which is applied to the fields during the winter months. Field and greenhouse planting begins right around Christmas. Thousands of grapevines and fruit trees are hand-pruned January through March. Our Farm Store doors officially open for the season shortly after the first peaches and blackberries of the season are picked, usually mid-May. We grow over 100 different varieties of fruits and vegetables, many of which cannot be found anywhere else locally. All of our produce is local and fresh, straight from our farm. Most of our produce is picked and sold the same day, so our customers truly know the meaning of "fresh produce". We also offer a variety of pick-your-own options throughout the season, including our easy to pick thornless blackberries.
