Big Rock Berry Farm is a local fruit farm owned and operated by Tim and Amber Darragh. We have four young sons with our youngest (the twins) turning one in July 2017. This past year has been a very busy one for us! Our goal is to provide locally grown fresh fruit for ourselves and our customers in a fun and inviting way. Our hope is that customers will come to our farm to pick fruit for themselves or to purchase pre-picked baskets of fruit. Because we are a young family ourselves, we want to make our farm inviting for families. We enjoy teaching our sons where our food comes from, how it is grown, maintained, and cultivated, and how to enjoy it both fresh and as an ingredient in cooking. We hope that by coming to our farm, others will be able to share the same knowledge and experiences with their children. In addition, we plan to make this a fun family adventure with activities for children to enjoy while they are here. We look forward to meeting you all and hope you enjoy your time at our farm!
New this year – we have planted some pumpkin seeds (an array of varieties)! Watch our Facebook page and we’ll keep you posted on how this experiment is going and whether we will have pumpkins available this fall! It’s a learning process for us – where is the best place to plant them, which varieties will do best in our soil, what conditions do they prefer?
