Karefree Produce

We are a family owned farm and 2010 was our first year in operation. We have grown fruits and vegetables for our family and friends for years and decided to take our gardening to the next level. Strawberries, fresh vegetables, honey, fresh herbs, cut flowers, and farm fresh eggs are just a few of the items that will be available Families can come out and pick their own strawberries and vegetables. Then you can sit at a picnic table in the shade and eat the "fruits" of your labor. For those who prefer that someone else do the picking, we have an air conditioned farm market that will be fully stocked. You can also come and sit in a rocking chair on the front porch of the market under the ceilings fans and socialize. We also have a kitchen in the market where all the jams, jellies, and sauces will be made along with desserts like your grandmother used to make. Stop by and visit with us.

Notes:
We will be closed on Mondays for harvesting and re-planting and general farm maintenance. We would be happy to open for your group or family outing-just give us a call. When the strawberry season ends our hours will change to 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
