|Our Fruit Farm|
Long before there was Glorie Farm Winery, there was Glorie Farms (also previously known as Stoneside Farm). We grow about 20 acres of fruit: summer and fall raspberries, blackberries, plums, peaches, pears, apples, and wine grapes. Though we do not offer pick-your-own, our fresh-picked fruit is available to our visitors for purchase in season. If you've never had a peach straight from the tree, you are in for an incredible treat! Once you've had a true fresh fruit experience, you'll look differently at the fruit in the grocery store. You will know that if peaches bear stickers saying they're from Georgia, then the sign above them that says "Tree-Ripened Peaches" simply isn't true. Our peaches ripen on a tree; their peaches ripen on a truck. There's a world of difference between the two, and once you've had the real thing, you can't possibly go back to the other stuff.
Grapes are harvested mostly in September. The weather can sometimes be unpleasant, but fresh fruit has to be picked when it's ready whether the sun is shining or not. Sometimes, as you can see in this photo, the weather is gorgeous.
So, another season came to a successful close here on Glorie Farms. The crops were all brought in. The Wreath Fineries event was a success. We're trying to enjoy a slower pace of life through the winter months. Spring will be here soon enough, and another cycle of life on the farm will begin. We'll be back a little later to share a few new photos and talk about spring time conditions.
Just a reminder: Raspberries are the first crop to come in, right around the July 4th holiday. Imagine these little crimson babies in your cereal, stirred into yogurt, baked into pies or tarts, or whipped up into jams. Of course, that can only happen if you're able to resist eating them directly from the pint container!
