The Happy Berry, a pick-your-own farm, is nestle in the foot hills of the South Carolina mountains by the shores of an 18,000 acre lake known as Keowee. The main crops are blueberries, blackberries, figs, muscadines and seedless grapes. Pussy Willows are also grown from Xmas till Easter. We maximize the harvest season by planting several different varieties of of each crop so berries can be picked from June 1 till early October. January thru April we do pussy willows programs at home shows and garden clubs and are open on Saturdays. We also raise a few chickens for eggs. We use a rotational pasture system for the chickens. We also sell a few winter vegetables throught Clemson Area Food Exchange(CAFE) & North Georgia Locally Grown.
PICKING BERRIES IS FUN and a great break from fast paced lifestyles. We have containers or you can bring your own. The grass is mowed; we have a berry buggy to asist handicapped people in getting in and out of the field if needed; a port-o-potty, picnic tables, and free ice water are available.
