Good news the blueberry field will be open Tuesday morning at 7:30 am until 11:00 am. We are now getting peaches from Spartanburg. After growing peaches for over thirty years I do not hesitate to say that the Spartanburg area has perhaps some of the best peaches in North America. That may sound like a big exaggeration but until proven wrong I'll stick with it. I've grown some good peaches here on the farm but year in and out the Spartanburg peaches have been better than any I have seen anywhere.
We have green butterbeans, blackberries, watermelons,cantaloupes, corn all plentiful now.

It looks like Saturday morning will be the next blueberry the next PYO day. The berries should be plentiful.
Be sure to check out the peaches and watermelons ( some of the best we have had this year). Also check out Moka cafe, it has been very well received.

Blueberry picking will be open Tuesday 7:30 to 10:30 am. The produce market has some very good watermelons and corn. The peaches and blackberries are very good now also.

 The produce market opens at 9 am. The Moka Cafe opens at 6:30 am so you can get something before you pick blueberries or afterwards.

We anticipate having the field open before again this week and Saturday so stay in touch.

The farm market will be open July 4th from 9 to 1 pm and Sarah will be at Myrtle's market until 12 noon. thanks, Sam

    The farm market will be closed this Monday but reopen Tuesday morning at 9 am. We have been picking blueberries for the markets and should begin PYO this week. As we normally do the first 2 times of PYO will be very short because we do not want to over pick the fruit. A blueberry needs to be fully ripe not just colored blue. It takes a whole week to recover from over picking and under ripe fruit is not he quality we want to sell. Watch closely the emails, website and this Face book site.


   Squash, zucchini and cucumbers continue to share their season in the sun. The dill is slowly coming up to speed. Kale and collards are still coming in. We have a new planting that will soon be harvested. The collards are smaller but our feedback has been very good. I have not had bountiful amounts of carrots but the ones we have pulled have been very good. There is more broccoli on the way. Beans are coming along and increasing in volume. Look for some October beans soon. Cantaloupes and watermelons are shaping up. The tomatoes and peppers are doing what they can to get up to speed. We should have a bountiful supply of basil.

We are digging our potatoes now. This ought to be interesting as there are new varieties and a good crop. The site for these potatoes is very good. I am interested in knowing will the soil make a difference in the eating qualilty of these tubers!

Watermelons and cantaloupes are very good now. We are bringing them in from Columbia but they now seem to have over come the bad weather that set them back earlier.

  Thank you for supporting us, especially the farm market. We have struggled to fill in voids and hope that you will find in the next weeks that the farm market is a place that can serve you well and be worthy of your support. the Moka cafe is opening around the end of the month.You can find them on facebook.
