OPEN SATURDAY JULY 27TH FROM 7AM TO 12 PM: CLOSED TUES AND THURS THIS WEEK
Dr. Young's Pond Berry Farm has been selling pick-your-own berries since the late eighties. We have a small but expanding planting of red raspberries which usually come in from mid-May until mid-June. Our blackberries typically come in from early June to the end of July. Our blueberries come in from mid-June into August.
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. Stan is the head farmer who does the main work in the field and plans the care of the plants.
David and Jonathan are the tall, handsome, young ones who help pickers learn which berries are the sweetest and where to best find them in the field.
At Dr. Young's Pond Berry Farm, we try 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.

CROP UPDATES 7/21/2013
We have been very fortunate to have the help of Carl Reichenbach this season. He has finished the time he had available to help us. We will miss him and hope he will return to help us next year.
We continue to try to build our email list, but we missed a lot of new people when it got really busy at the register. Anyone who would like to add their name to the list can go to the Contact link on this website and add their address.
A few out there but about done.
We have enough ripening berries to be open on Saturday July 27th. The overripe ones have fallen off and the last new berries are coming in. Don't miss out on one last fresh berry pie.
Still a few.
Check out the new addition to our recipes (courtesy of Carl) ; a delicious blueberry poundcake.
