CLOSED FOR THE 2017 SEASON: SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!

Dr. Young’s Pond Berry Farm has been selling pick-your-own berries since the late eighties. Our thornless blackberries typically come in from early June to the end of July. Our blueberries come in from mid-June into August. For the early birds, we have a small but expanding planting of red raspberries which usually come in from mid-May until mid-June. During the fall, we often have a harvest of Japanese persimmons.

At Dr. Young’s Pond Berry Farm, we strive to provide the public with a top quality product and an enjoyable picking experience. We accept cash and checks, but, sorry, no credit or debit cards.

We are a family business, but our name is not Young. Dr. Young owned the property many years ago, and we kept his name because the people of Angier know the pond, our landmark, by this name. We are the Trustmans. Betty is the voice on our answering machine and the face behind the sales counter. She is also the baker of delicious berry treats, available in limited quantities throughout the season. Stan is the head farmer who does the main work in the field and plans the care of the plants. There is David, the son with gigantic beard and Sarah, his memorable fiance. Lauren and her crew of three are there on Saturdays. Jonathan, the less-bearded son, helps pickers learn which berries are the sweetest and where to best find them in the field.

We are seeing the berries pass their peak earlier than ever before, but there are still beautiful berries ripening in the field.  They will be easy to pick and delicious. Yesterday, we were complemented to be mentioned on WRAL’s article on places to pick blueberries. We had a great turnout that resulted from the article. …

Blackberries are still hanging from the vines with big juicy berries ready to go home with the pickers. Blueberries take a little more time but they are delicious.  We are going to open up our private blueberries which are all but certified organic. Great flavor! We’ve got blackberry and blueberry jam ready to take home.  …
