Love Your Local Farmer

While our hearts are heavy for the unprecedented effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our community, we are dedicated to keeping our farm an accessible and safe resource for our neighbors to purchase their local produce during this difficult time. We have made the decision to remain closed for public gatherings for the remainder of the season due to ongoing health and safety concerns of our Team Members, guests and vendors.

In lieu of visiting the farm to pick your own blueberries, peaches, sunflowers and zinnias, we’ll pick them for you to enjoy from the safety and comfort of home! Simply visit our online store, choose the fruit, flowers, Market items and food items (including our blueberry donuts!) that you would like to purchase, along with a designated pick-up date and time at the farm. We’ll have your order ready for when you arrive.

Online order pick-ups end Friday, May 29th. We’ll have frozen blueberries, peaches and sweet corn available while supplies last, along with Market merchandise, food truck meals and baked goods. We are so thankful for our community’s support and for shopping local. Thanks for loving your local farmer!

Our farm will remain closed for public gathering for the remainder of the season. The times and dates below are for online order pick-up only.

Seasonal Crops

On our one hundred twenty acre farm, our perennial plantings include forty acres of blueberry bushes, five acres of peach trees and sixty eight acres of ornamental trees. Our newest crops include delightful sunflowers and zinnias, both of which are available for picking during our Spring U-pick and Fall Festival. We’ll be planting strawberries within the next couple of years which allows us to extend our u-pick season, giving you another harvest to enjoy at the farm (in case the fresh donuts weren’t enough). Our Fall Festival is a family destination to remember, held weekends in October.
