I still have a good supply of nice Amish Paste tomatoes, and would like to offer a quantity discount to all of our loyal customers.  Right now you can get these delicious, versatile, heirloom tomatoes for $2.20/lb when purchasing 10lb or more.  Available for on-farm pick up in Keezletown, or I may be able to deliver to Harrisonburg or nearby areas.

Great for making sauce, soup, slicing on sandwiches and salads, freezing, canning. Get ’em while they last! The season will be over very soon.

Call or text Hannah at 540-269-6251 to place your order and schedule pickup or delivery.

Come find us at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market this Saturday in booth #17, near the center of the market.  We will have tomatoes, garlic, tomatillos, sorghum molasses, and grapes.

Grape season is in full swing at Hickory Hill Farm. The crop is excellent, the vines hanging heavy with large clusters of super sweet fruit. Currently we are offering the Fredonia variety, an early Concord type at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market every Tuesday and Saturday, with Concords soon to follow. Specials and bulk discounts will be available while supplies last. If you want our grapes and can’t make it to the market, check with Massanutten Produce in Penn Laird, Friendly City Food Co-op, or Woods Edge Farm stand at the junction of 42 and Cromer Road. These locations should have our grapes available throughout season. If anyone is interested in bulk orders directly from the farm, contact Grant at 540-560-2939 to place an order. Remember that grape season is relatively short, so get your share of this sweet treat from nature that is both tasty and healthy while you can!

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!

We have so many flavorful, ripe blueberries that we have decided to expend our Special from last week.  Berries will be 20% off if you pick 5 lb or more.  The end of the blueberry season will be here soon, so the best time to come pick is now.

We will be open for blueberry U-pick this week at the following days and times if supplies last:

  • Monday July 8, 8am-12pm & 6pm-9pm
  • Tuesday July 9, 8am-12pm & 6pm-9pm
  • Wednesday July 10, 8am-12pm & 6pm-9pm
  • Thursday July 11, 8am-12pm & 6pm-9pm
