    Fall is in the air and much is happening here at the farm. After a very difficult spring and summer we hope for a Fall that will help put us all in a better state. Preparing for strawberry planting, planting winter crops, preparing for the event days, training the race pigs, the PYO pumpkins, the tours , the night time hay rides, making grape juice and apple cider it leaves a lot to look froward to. Some of the pumpkins look very good at this point.

   Now is a great time for beans, cucumbers, squash and some to the summer items that had a difficult time during the summer of rain.

                               looking forward                      

  This year for Farm Heritage Day we have Meck Hartsfield returning. Meck is a very talented ,knowledgable craftsman black smith. He is from the Phillip Simmons line of smiths. He is President of the black smith guild which proudly bears Phillip Simmon's name. Meck has a strong connection with the late Phillip Simmons. In fact we have had Walter Hill , the director of the Horry County Museum, who himself is a part of that guild working the hit and miss engine turning the grist mill. You would do yourself a favor to ask Walter about his work as well. These men have their work being used in  historic places along the SC coast. Besides being fascinating to watch, you can ask questions and even inquire about having work done.

    Farm Heritage Day has much more. I hope to post more information about the particular people involved.

The blueberry field will be open Saturday 7:30 to noon. Now is a good time for figs and peaches. Ask about ice cream peaches. They may still have some. Homemade peach ice cream doesn't just sound good , IT IS GOOD!  The bakery has lots of good summertime treats as well.

 The blueberry field will be open Tuesday and we plan for  Saturday this week.

Peaches are still coming in well. Ask about 1/2 bushel baskets, canning peaches or special ice cream peaches. We may have some of the later but you might need to ask. The peaches are good this time of year. All are free stone as well.

 Figs are just beginning to come in. The celeste variety is currently in. We have picked a few Texas everbearing. Alma will be next. Then the yellow skin fig will be last.

  Friday looks good for PYO blueberries. So both Friday and Saturday will be open for blueberries  7:30 to 11 Friday and 7:30 to noon Saturday. Please bring some insect repellent.

Saturday morning there will be a road race on the farm so be careful not to park in thier area or you may get blocked in. If you park where we normally park for PYO blueberries you will have no problems.

Peaches! We are picking Sun Prince and Ga Belle peaches. It is a good time for peaches. If you like white peaches Ga Belle is the peach for you. To this day one of the best desserts I have ever had was Ga Belle peaches served on opened faced homemade biscuits. Yes, I didn't eat just one.
