We had a great time picking berries at Holmestead Farm this past Saturday. The southern hospitality was the best part. Worth the drive to Clay County. We also bought the best nectarines I have EVER eaten! The white flesh ones were unreal! I’ve made a Blueberry and mixed Berry Galette, infused waters, and a yummy Raspberry vinegarette. We’ve had berries on ice cream and yogurt. Not to mention the fistfuls we’ve eaten right out of the fridge! Thanks for the work y’all are doing!

My daughter and I picked blueberries last week. They, and everything else we bought, were delicious. We par-steamed the purple hull peas and then sautéed them with hot Italian sausage, fresh ground black pepper, fresh lemon juice, fresh garlic and onion. We really enjoyed them for one meal and had enough left over for a second the next day. Yum! ~ L. Rosenfeld
