Chris and I have lived in our little place in Connestee Falls for six years and the good news is that we are still finding new places to visit. Just when I think I have been to every farm market and produce stand around I discovered that I had indeed missed a very important one.
Queens Berry and Flower Farm is located at 858 Davidson River Road in Pisgah Forest just outside of Brevard, NC. While I had heard of it before we just had never gone there. Then I saw a post on Facebook that they had gotten in some FIGS and I was all over it. (More on the figs later.)
The farm is a U Pick place with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and flowers to pick. They have some other produce and it is just a really great place to go to get some nice organic, healthy food. I was just a little bit too excited when we visited but hey – it’s nice to discover a new favorite place.
Lorri graciously welcomed us, put up with my questions and excitement, and gave me the details on picking flowers. I have to admit that that was the most fun thing I have done in awhile. Just imagine rows and rows of beautiful flowers all for the picking. I had a goal in mind to get some sunflowers for a bouquet for a 86th birthday celebration of a friend but I might have gotten a few for myself as well.
The farm itself is beautiful and what used to be a dairy farm and has transitioned to an organic berry farm over the 20 years it has existed. I loved some of the old buildings on the property and could imagine a fun photo shoot with them in the background.
