FINAL DAY OF THE SEASON SAT JULY 26TH FROM 7AM TO 1PM!
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 7/25/2014
We have widened our entrance and driveway to allow two way traffic. We have added a gravel top so that we can also better handle heavy rain.
The blackberries are finished for this season. We look forward to next year when our newest rows will be in production.
The blueberries are still loaded with berries. Some plants are hiding their sweetest berries in the middle of the plant. We hope to pick them until the end of the month when we will have to start pruning to stimulate growth for next year's berries.
The raspberries continue putting out a second crop and they look great. We have newly ripened ones each day that we pick.
