Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for June 23rd pickup!

Good evening!

The Online Market is open! Online Market pickups are now on Wednesdays from 4-6 pm. Thank you all for supporting both our Outdoor and Online Markets!

As pandemic numbers continue to decrease and we slowly return to a new normal, we’re planning to open the Grayson Landcare office back up! Don’t worry, the Online Market will continue to run, but we will be inviting customers back inside to pick up their orders at their convenience between 4-6 pm on Wednesday afternoons. If you are uncomfortable with coming inside, just let us know each week what time you’d like to pick up and we’ll leave your box on a table outside for you. We’ll let you know when we implement these changes, feel free to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or ideas!

The weather is “ripe” for planting and we still have over 110 days left of the planting season. It’s not too late to plant just about anything that’s not a cool weather crop! We have a wide variety of Southern Exposure seeds available to order on the Online Market that are just right for our region!

Thanks again and happy shopping!

Martin's Farmstand:  U-pick today- peak of season, Come and get them!

We will be open for u-pick this afternoon (Wed June 16) starting at 2 PM. This will be the peak picking for this year. Picking conditions are very good with thousands of quarts of berries to pick today. There are so many ripe berries that we will not be picked out quickly even if there is a large turnout. Come and get them! The sugar snap and shell peas are ready also ( this is exceptionally early) and there are a few bushels of early cauliflower and broccoli at the stand today along with some of the earliest of the new potatoes. Greenhouse cucumbers and tomatoes are becoming abundant- chard, spinach, beet greens and more, the stand is full of good food. Come and get it!

Hours for u-pick are Wednesday, start 2 PM (no morning picking on Wednesdays); Saturday, start 7 AM and Monday starting at 7 am. This repeats through out the whole season. The patch closes when the berries are all picked or at 6 PM.
When you arrive you do not need to stop at the stand to weigh your containers if you know the empty weight already. Also you do not need to stop if you are picking into standard Quart or gallon containers.
You have the option of bringing your own containers or buy empties from us.(Quart boxes 25 cents each or $20 per hundred. Gallon buckets $3 each.)
We will be using the same random picking pattern that we did last year. This means that you may start anyplace you wish in the patches that are open as long as you are not cutting in front of someone. It is mandatory that when you are picking that all the ripe berries are picked as you move ( No roaming or grazing type picking. A section of row must either be picked or not picked when you leave. We keep scouting the patch and suggesting where you will find good picking. Daniel
