It’s not too late.

The Strawberry Shack will be open Tuesday and Wednesday 10am-1pm (at least).
We are close to finishing cotton harvest – which is where I disappear every afternoon. I may stay later, or be available to meet you later, if you contact us. We cut collards in the morning, so if you can let us know the night before, it helps to have them ready when you arrive.
Pre-orders for collards (by the leaf, $1.50lb or plant, $2-$4 depending on size), kale and cabbage can be placed at or call/text 757-255-4563. Please leave a message if I am unable to answer. I will return the call.
We will be making sausage many times before Christmas so send an email to get on the pre-order list.
Wishing everyone a fun filled and healthy Thanksgiving.

This year we have a variety of fresh, locally grown produce for your Thanksgiving table and beyond. 

Collards, kale, cabbage, turnips, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and our pork bulk sausage are available. 

SCHEDULING PICKUP: We believe in fresh, so we pick the day you want it. Help us have it ready for you, by emailing us at: with the day you would like to pickup. IF you like cooking it before the big day, we can work with you.

Currently, we are scheduling for Saturday, November 18; Monday, November 20-Wednesday, November 23 – hours to be announced as we get closer.

PORK SAUSAGE: We make bulk pork sausage many times throughout the year. We are planning to have some available at the farm the weekends we have produce pickup.
