The strawberry field will open at 8 am Monday. This week looks pretty good. Tuesday may have some clouds but we may still be able to open the field. The rest of the week looks good at this point.

  The market has some very good farm carrots. Winter carrots are far sweeter than spring and summer carrots. Curly mustard greens should be coming in well. Farm radishes, lettuce and more are fighting through some cool temperatures for April,  Soon things should be abundant.

  Be sure to check out the bakery and garden center as well.

   The strawberry field will open at 8 am Monday morning. The berries look good and taste very good for the early season. The picking is easy. We encourage you to bring a container to take your berries home in. We have buckets to pick in but will need to charge for a waxed box top    ( $1.00 ) if you don't have a container. We are cost conscience on your end as well as ours. So we hope you will bring a container.

  So far people have given  very positive input regarding the flavor of the fruit. We have some cool weather predicted for this week. Hopefully , we can escape the frost. If the weather permits we hope to have the field open most days. call to make sure, 843-399-6902 or 910-287-6794. I will try to post it days on a blog on the website, www.indigofarmsmarket.com.                                                                                                                     

  The organic potatoes are pushing through very nicely. New varieties are added and planted for this year. The curly mustard will be coming off this week, some very great tasting carrots, organic lettuce and other produce brought in. 

   Be sure to check out the market, produce, bakery and garden center.

Happy Easter!! I hope your day is one of resilient hope rooted in truth and eternal joy!

Things are happening here on the farm. First the strawberries are red and we are picking. As some of you know who have been with us for years, the flavor of the fruit is affected by the weather and growing conditions. So it may seem strange unless you understand this but with cool nights it takes longer to get the full flavor in the fruit. This is not true for some fruits such as apples  and pears. They get better with cool nights. Many small fruits actually benefit from warm temperatures. Blueberries, blackberries and peaches especially. It has to do with  sugar production in the leaves and the transfer to the fruit.

  Obviously, you know what I am looking for in the strawberries and I am confident we will get there soon. We have tried some new techniques that I hope will result in very pleasing berries. We started picking the first berries Saturday. We expect the PYO to open very soon depending on the weather. The crop looks to be one that will get rolling fast once it begins.

Meanwhile the market is open. the strawberries we are picking are good but the flavor will improve. The produce section is still slim but we are wanting to rely more on what we grow. Our commitment to offer you the best quality at the best price is one we take seriously. We are continuing to  set out our transplants and nurturing the crops to maturity.

The market should be open this Friday. The Produce will begin a little slow due to the fact we are trying to produce more of what we sell. Strawberries are turning red so things should progress steadily. The cool front hopefully will not do us damage and PYO strawberries will be here very soon.

  We have a lot to look forward to this weekend with Easter and Spring reviving our spirits. We hope for you the best.
