Sweet potatoes, turnip greens and frozen blueberries now. Strawberries ready next.
Wintertime is our season to reflect on the past year and plan for next year. With over 7000 berry plants, there are plenty of winter jobs including some cane renewal pruning in the blueberries, digging up vine and poke weed roots, building compost piles and shoveling mulch under the berry plants. For those in or near Athens, we now have our sweet potatoes and blueberries listed on Athens Locally Grown. You are also welcome to stop by the farm to pickup fresh produce (always ring first).
