THIS WEEK: REGULAR HOURS TUESDAY AND THURSDAY FROM 7 AM TO 1PM AND SPECIAL HOURS SATURDAY JUNE 25TH FROM 7AM TO 4 PM
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 6/24/2016
An article in the News and Observer about our farm was published on the 18th of June. We were excited to see a large number of new pickers as a result. We hope that more people will be able to come out and see what we have to offer out at our farm.
There are some rows of blackberries that are getting a little tired but other ones are still loaded. Come and get some while they are easy to pick!
Blueberries are coming in now all over the field. It takes little time to fill a bucket now. They are large and sweet and waiting to go home with you.
All three rows of raspberries are showing ripe berries. They are large and delicious and will be available for the early birds.
We have a new piece of equipment that we purchased last year. It is used to exterminate voles which have been giving us fits for many years. It doesn't use pesticides and is 100% environmentally friendly. Ask to see it.
