Home for nursery and landscape plants with a full garden center including hanging baskets, annuals and pine straw. We also have strawberries and blueberries for you to pick or already picked as well as a full fruit stand and a CSA program called Doorstep Market. We are located in Johnston County, NC just 25 minutes southeast of Raleigh. In the fall we offer hayrides and pumpkin picking. In the spring and fall we offer field trips for kids to pick strawberries or pumpkins, feed fish, visit our chickens, goats and donkey and much more.
We have started picking strawberries! The warm weather in February resulted in an especially early strawberry crop. An early strawberry season is great news for our customers who have waited nearly 9 months for the return of fresh, local strawberries! Keep in mind, it is still very early for strawberries so quantities may be limited at this point in the season. To ensure we have fresh berries, please call ahead or check our Facebook page. Spring is officially here, but we also are keeping a watchful eye on the weather. Freezing temperatures will kill strawberry blooms, so we must be diligent by covering or frost protecting the berries when temperatures dip below freezing. We have just started harvesting our greenhouse tomatoes. We expect to continue picking tomatoes into June. You can't beat a fresh, local, vine-ripened tomato!
