•What about the berries? The opening of our organic Blueberry Patch Upick is available on a first come first serve basis, and we definitely recommend that anyone wanting to pick arrive as close to 9:00AM as possible. Crops will be especially limited this year as we have had to make room for other berry operations and the sale of blueberry plants! That’s right, this year we will have multiple varieties of producing berry plants available for sale. You’ll be able to build your very own berry patch! You won’t want to miss out on our market!
Thirsty? Try a frozen lemonade or shaved ice from The Chilly Flamingo! 26 flavors of shaved ice ($3) and 4 flavors of lemonade ($5) not even the pickiest of grandkids could complain!
Or try a delicious fresh ground coffee from the Lyv Mobile Coffee Truck!
•What about dessert? Try a scrumptious scone or gluten free loaf from Fresh From Daisy!
What about Fido? Can he come? Well behaved pets are welcome on the property. Please keep in mind that we will have small livestock such as rabbits, chickens & ducks on site, so if you don’t know how Fido will react to them, perhaps best to leave him home.
•What’s a Kids Gardening Center? We invite all of our potential future farmers to try their hand at painting a vegetable pot or hiding rock, making a seed bomb or planting their very own vegetable seed to grow at home!
•Where should we park? Free Parking is available along the open lot at Potts Road and Winn Road. Please look for signage, observe speed limits and park in designated spots only to respect our neighbors. We’ve filled the entire stretch of road with vehicles before at previous events, we recommend a stroller, cart, or good comfy shoes and eating your Wheaties if you plan on purchasing fruit trees or bringing the kids, just in case.
