Dean and Judy Henry realized a dream by establishing the Berry Patch Farm in the early 1970s. Today you'll see Judy at the markets, Dean on the tractors, and their son Mike at the stand and picking the freshest harvest. Throughout the Berry Patch you'll see the personal touches of each individual involved.

We grow strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, vegetables, apples, and more: see what we harvest when.

You can get Berry Patch produce from the farm, at markets, and through CSAs (community supported agriculture).

The Berry Patch is known for its fine produce and innovative techniques. At the farm you won't find carnival rides, cotton candy, or silly entertainment to detract from the genuine quiet of the country. We focus our energy on growing good food and being good stewards of the land.

Innovative Agriculture Merging with Nature

A pragmatic approach to organic, sustainable farming.

Dean is a scientist at heart, who thrives on knowledge and challenge. He studies the latest methods and tests techniques to raise the best produce in ways that are healthy for the land.

We use sustainable farming techniques in all of our crops. Some are produced organically and other crops are produced utilizing the latest integrated pest management techniques (IPM). We use a great deal of compost for fertilizer and weed control. Drip irrigation makes the best use of our pure well water to produce top quality apples and berries for you.

Awards and Mentions

The Berry Patch Farm has been awarded the District Soil Conservation Award.
