Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update - July 26, 2013

Posted 7/26/2013 12:12pm by Cheryl Ferguson.

Happy Friday, Farm Friends!

Berries, berries, berries!  Yes, it's that time folks!  Blackberry and raspberry time!  We'll have our first pick your own of the year TOMORROW (7/27) from 9 to noon!  Head on out for some good picking!  The berries are looking gorgeous -- and man, are they tasty (but you know that, right?)  The current weather forecast calls for temperatures in the low to mid-70s and a 30% chance of rain.  Sounds like a winner!! Just as a reminder, the farm is located at the intersection of Hwy 66 and Flat Shoals Road 4.3 miles from the traffic light at Mountainview Road and Hwy 66.  We'll have a few directional signs out as well.  For more complete directions, please check our website.
