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 June), and blueberries and blackberries (June and early July), available by the pint and gallon, pick your own by the pound. We harvest our ripest and sweetest berries from 2000 strawberry plants, 2000 blackberry plants, 2500 blueberry plants, and 17 mulberry trees.
Our you-pick hours will be changing this year as we narrow our pick your own window and focus on farm efficiency as it’s literally a husband and wife team with 2 children under 3 trying to make a go of farming. We have some loyal folks who volunteer time in exchange for a place to calm the mind, touch the soil, and connect with the farm. Let us know if you would like to give a hand. We have jobs for nearly anyone and welcome all help! You can find us at the Freedom Farmers Market on Saturday mornings with frozen blueberries and fresh small batch preserves made weekly. We prefer visits to our farm on Wednesdays or late Saturday; that being said, we strongly encourage that you ring us in advance of visiting to ensure we are home.
Pre-picked berries and veggies are available by request in the Picked 4 U section. 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 the future. 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.
