This is a family owned and operated pick-your-own orchard and nursery who planted their first tree in the spring of 1997. Today they have 33 acres planted with blackberries, some thornless, figs, jujube (Asian dates), Asian pears, Asian persimmons and citrus. In 1998 they added picnic facilities for over 100 people. In 2002 they built a barn and flushable toilets. In 2005 they added a deer proof fence and purchased guinea hens to free roam the orchard.

Besides the orchard they also provide facilities for group outings, offering fun educational tours to schools, church groups and other organizations. Groups enjoy the country experience while using picnic facilities, playground and sporting equipment. Evening hayrides and sing alongs by the campfire are fun for all ages.

Fruit picking hours are 9am to 2pm however, the hours are seasonal depending on fruit availability. The Harvest Festival, with a pumpkin patch, is celebrated in October and November.
