We have a good supply of tomatoes including red and yellow slicers, heirlooms, and paste tomatoes.  We also have tomatillos and garlic, which together can make a delicious salsa verde, and sweet sorghum molasses.  All this will be available at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market on Saturday, August 10 from 8am to 1pm.  Look for us in booth #17, near the center of market.

We plan to have produce at market every Saturday through the fall, and expect to bring our first grapes in two weeks.

Thanks for supporting our family run business.  We look forward to seeing you at market.

UPDATE: THE BLUEBERRY SEASON IS NOW OVER AND THERE ARE NO MORE BLUEBERRY PICKING OR GLEANING OPTIONS THIS YEAR

 

Our blueberry supply is dwindling and our U-pick season is now over.

There are still some good berries in the patch that are worth picking, and you are welcome to come pick any time on our self-serve honor system.  The price is amazing, so don’t miss this chance to stock up on blueberries to snack on, put in the freezer, bake some pies, or cook up a batch of blueberry jam!

  • There will be no staff present to assist you.
  • Upon arrival, look for instructions, buckets, and ropes on the side of the red shed.
  • Price is $10/bucket (one gallon). Please estimate for partial buckets.
  • Please bring EXACT CHANGE or CHECK as no one will be present to make change for you.  Payment is on the honor system.
  • Be sure to BRING CONTAINERS to take your berries home in.
  • You may pick wherever you like, and you will find the most berries on rows 1-12.  Look around a bit to make sure you find the best picking available.
  • Come soon!  With each day the birds and bugs eat more of the berries.

Thanks to all of you who came out to the berry patch this year and helped make the 2019 harvest a success!  We appreciate your support of our family business, and of the legacy of the late Samuel Johnson who planted these blueberry bushes and nourished the crop for over 30 years.

See you in June 2020!
