Strawberries ready soon!
Spring is quickly approaching! We have less than 2 months before our last frost date (April 15) which is when we will madly plant lots of veggies directly into the ground. We also hope to be harvesting strawberries in late March to early April through May possibly June. May will be harvest time for garlic. For those in or near Athens, we have our produce listed on Athens Locally Grown, buy what you want each week on Monday and Tuesday and pickup on Thursday evenings. You are also welcome to stop by the farm to pickup fresh produce (always ring first). Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates (below) or join our Facebook group.
A Family Favorite Berry Farm near Athens Georgia
Husband and wife team, Cameron and Laura, welcome you to visit their beautiful 23 acre berry farm nestled among pine trees and pasture, located about 30 min south of Athens and within 2 hours of Atlanta and Augusta. In April and early May, you can expect to find ripe strawberries followed by mulberries (May and early June), and blueberries and blackberries (June and early July), available by the pint and gallon. We harvest our ripest and sweetest berries from 2000 strawberry plants, 2000 blackberry plants, 2500 blueberry plants, and 16 mulberry trees. In September and October we harvest sweet potatoes.
Our you-pick hours will be changing this year as we steer away from pick your own and focus more on a weekly farmers market. We will be selling our berries at the Athens Farmers Market (Saturday mornings at Bishop Park) May through July. Subject to change, we plan to be open at the farm on Wednesdays and select Saturdays from April into August.
Pre-picked berries are available by request in the Picked 4 U section. Veggies and flowers are also on the 2019 menu. We are working on our calender to host a Healthy Lifestyle series of “How to make and Why” workshops including fermented pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, homemade yogurt, green smoothies, kombucha, bone broths and more in 2019. Let us know if you are interested in any of these workshops. See our Blog for farm updates, favorite recipes and ideas to enjoy these delicious fresh foods.
