    Comments from a visitor on July 07, 2010: "This farm sells produce at the Chattanooga Market on Sundays, so I always pick up things there; they are always very knowledgeable and ready to help you get the right thing. I met the owner a few weeks ago and he mentioned that they offer Pick Your Own blackberries when they come in and gave me directions, so I headed out earlier this week. I FILLED an entire gallon in about 5 minutes! Biggest blackberries I've ever seen (size of my thumb- only 3 fit in my palm) and they made the most loved jam! Their strawberries this season were terrific also!"
