It was great! They were very friendly and let us pick at our own pace. We found great veggies, even late in the season and my four-year-old loved the experience. Also picked up a half-bushel of ripe apples for $8 and am making applesauce today. I think it's a great concept and a super experience for kids. Highly recommend!

The veggies were so fresh and delicious. It was a super value for how much we got with our Groupon The kids had fun picking and it was great experience for them to see how and where produce grows.

Best tomatoes I've had in a really long time. Totally enjoyed driving through and picking my own food right off the plants. Wish I would have known about this place earlier in the year. Will definitely be back.

It was fun to pick the veggies - would be helpful to be able to go to your web site to know what is being picked

Very overpriced when using Groupon. It would of been a lot less if I had used cash. Won't do this one again! You have to go out into a bunch of weeds and find produce that has been picked over by the pickers. The first time out I didn't have enough and had to go back out and so I picked up 4 3" pumpkins and when I get back up there to check out they told me they were $2.98 each! All that tromping around in the weeds and then I had to put them back! Doubt they'll be there next year...

It was very difficult to find where items were located in the field. Many areas were over grown with weeds. Also not knowing the prices per lb. made it difficult to estimate how much we were picking. The price for the already picked produce was the same as pick your own. We ending up spending more than I would have spent in the grocery store considering the amount of produce we left with. The groupon also stated free popcorn, but there was none offered.

From Our Editors

Mark and Sharon Searcy were raised on the same soil as the crops that they grow on it today. In addition to the experience they've accumulated as lifelong residents of Henderson County, they've both taken long-term excursions to Haiti and Honduras, learning the polycultural techniques they employ on their own farm today. These techniques emphasize a minimal touch of pesticides on plants and have earned them certification by the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.

Under the watch of the Blue Ridge Mountains, fertile fields of kale, heirloom tomatoes, rare varieties of beans, and squash sprawl over acres of land. Stalks of sweet corn sway gently in the breeze, which passes through rustling leaves of apple and peach trees before rifling the fur of the requisite well-diving collie. The Farm sells the fruits of their harvests in their roadside market May–October, and also hosts pick-your-own sessions throughout the year. In their Country Store, patrons can browse through bags of popping corn, jars of homemade jellies and salsas, and blistering hot habanero peppers.
