Our normal open hours are 7 am to 5 pm but will stay open till 7 pm as long as we have pickers in the fields and for special arrangements. We cannot harvest in the rain or for a while after a rain because wet berries do not keep as well as dry berries. Give us a call to make sure we are open. 601 799 7243.

Turn right, follow Homer Spiers Rd. around its bend for 1/2 mile and the farm will be on the left. You will see our sign.

The Harvest Season
Our season usually begins in mid-May and lasts till early July, but is dependent upon winter weather and spring rains. Check with us to get harvest dates.
Prices for Blueberries (we had to go up to survive)
U-Pick: $10 per gallon or $1.50 per pound
We-Pick: $15 per gallon or $2.50 per pound
Prices for Blackberries
U-Pick: $14 per gallon or $2.50 per pound
We-Pick: $19 per gallon or $3.50 per pound
Compare these prices with your supermarket and be amazed, and ours are hand picked within one day and kept cool for maximum freshness and shelf life.
During the harvest season we are open on decent weather days Monday through Saturday and by phone appointment on Sunday afternoon. We start our day at 7 am and pick and pack until about 3 pm for our we-pick and commercial berries, but those who want to pick their own can do so till 7 pm if we are given a bit of notice. As the day progresses there will be bins of several different varietes in our cold room for comparison and selection
When available, we sell frozen blueberries, mostly machine picked, for $10 per gallon.
