VISTING FARM

Blackberry Picking…By Appointment

We are glad you are interested in picking our lovely blackberries.

Here’s How: 

  • Call us:  (434) 213-0062 to make an appointmentRed retro-styled telephone. Hang up!
  • NO DOGS OR PETS ALLOWED on Farm.  Food Safety and Sanitation laws prohibit animals.
  • Children under 12 years of age must be supervised by an adult (18 y/o+) who is not picking berries themselves – this is a working farm. So if you are bringing children under 12 years old and would also like to pick berries; you should bring another adult with you to watch over the young ones as you pick to keep everyone safe.

Helpful Suggestions:

  • Bring ice paks and a cooler with you to put your berries in after you have picked them.  Berries need to be kept cool as it affects their taste and how long they will be at their best.
  • We have buckets for you to use while picking and plastic bags for you to take your berries home in.  If you would like to bring your own containers to use; you can do that too!
  • Wearing long sleeves and gloves helps when picking – Blackberries have thorns.
  • Bring sunscreen and put it on before you go into the berry field.
  • There are often bees in the blackberry field doing their work. If you have allergies to bees bring your appropriate medication.

Price:

  • $3.95 per pound you pick
  • $5.95 per pound frozen/we have picked
  • We prefer cash or check but gladly take credit cards with a $10 minimum purchase.
