Asian Persimmon Picking
Sunday, October 20
9 am and 2 pm.
Cash or check please.
We recommend closed toes shoes, with pants tucked into socks. Fire ants are now everywhere in Orange County.
We will also have some prepicked persimmons at the Eno River Farmers Market on Saturday mornings along with microgreens, and fruit leaves for healthy caffeine free teas.
Sweet Retreat Orchard is a holistic pick-your-own farm in Hillsborough, North Carolina. We grow Asian persimmons, jujubes, blueberries, bush cherries, haskap berries and mulberries. For picking times and other news please sign up for our newsletter mailing list.
We also produce microgreens at our Durham location and offer free home delivery in Durham and retail sales at the Eno River Farmers Market in Hillsborough. Microgreens are available by the ounce, by the tray or in home growing kits. We also offer microgreen growing supplies, such as seeds, seed starter soil mix and trays. Please visit the Microgreens section of our website for further information on our products, pricing and delivery.
Our ten-acre orchard is within the Eno River watershed, so it is very important for us to use only ecologically sound practices. We also have our own well, an extensive drip irrigation system, rechargeable vehicles and a 2.2 kW photovoltaic system, which produces enough electricity to cover our farming needs.
There is a 240V charging station and a couple of 120V outlets at our entrance for public use.
Share our harvest, watch us grow!
Hope to see you at our Sweet Retreat.
Anikó and Phil
