We started farming in 2004. However, having
both had successful Air Force careers in the communications and computer fields, you can say farming
was not one of our mastered skills. But with persistence and a lot of advice from fellow farmers and the
Alabama County Extension Service along the way, farming has become our way of life.
We opened our
U-Pick in 2008 and try to keep all accessible areas nicely mowed so your family's experience will be
a memorable one. We also have other amenities such as a paved parking lot, small picnic area, restroom and
water fountain to make your stay even more enjoyable. We also maintain a number of bee colonies and a covered outdoor hydroponic garden where we grow over 1300
vegetable plants. The hydroponic garden is not open for u-picking, but we do sell the produce along with raw
honey from our beehives (when in season) at our fruit stand as well as through our online Produce Shopping List service.
In 2011 our son Matt created an afforable Pumpkin Patch and Hayride event to entertain young families in the area. As you might imagine this event has turned out to be a great
success and he plans to continue having one every Fall here at Barber Berry Farm.
