Notes for September 2021: Autumn is upon us and that means you'd better hurry to get blueberries and peaches; apples are already in full swing. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal specific updates.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.

    "July 2013 - Went twice during blueberry season and was amazed at how many blueberries there were. It was a long drive, but beautiful and well worth it! Abundant blueberries for $2/lb. No crowds to deal with and had no encounters with wasps, etc. Already planning to go again next year! (James City, VA)"
    A visitor writes on July 03, 2013:
    "Me and my two young kids had a great experience today at bush neck! David was very nice and the fruit was beautiful. We picked and smacked on blueberries and peaches and enjoyed the singing birds and georgeous property! It was a long drive out there but well worth the trip! We will definitely be back :-)"
    Comments from a visitor on May 05, 2011:
    (positive) "My 11yr old daughter and I went to Bush Neck Farms in Williamsburg last year. We had a great time and was pleasantly surprised to find the owner was her retired elementary school principal. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The peaches were in abundance and sweet. I believe they have only white peaches. The peaches & blueberries were easy to pick in well maintained groves. The blueberries were at the end of their season, but we still found plenty to pick. Will definitely go back again."
    Comments from a visitor on May 01, 2011:
    (positive) "We have been going to Bush Neck Farms several times a summer for 8 years. The owners are wonderful- they have watched our children grow up and care about our family. They love what they do and how they do it. The location is stunningly beautiful and the peaches and blueberries are amazing. By far our favorite picking location! "
    Comments from a visitor on July 13, 2010:
    (positive) "I visit Bush Neck Farm with my family every year. We always enjoy the blueberries, apples, and peaches. The prices are reasonable, not outrageous, and the owners- while they don't always seem bubbly or excited to see you- are good people. The gentleman that owns the farm and spends most of the summer out in the heat has always been patient and pleasant when I have been there. I hope that future visitors are not so quick to judge. "
    Comments from a visitor on July 11, 2010:
    "The farm is a half-hour drive from Rte.60. I note that one former visitor used the term "crumudgeonly" (sic)to describe the owners of this farm. I think the actual term should be "curmudgeonly." I would use the simple term "grouches." Be forewarned: They only accept cash AND only checks from James City County, Williamsburg, Poquoson and Yorktown!? They were skeptical about allowing use of our own picking containers as well. Needless to say, we moved on without their berries. There are friendlier farms in the surrounding counties."
    Comments from a visitor on July 01, 2010: (positive) "Went blueberry picking on June 30th. Delicious and plentiful! Also picked yellow transparent apples for applesauce. "

    Comments from a visitor on May 10, 2009:
    "I have been going to Henleys for 20 years and it is a family run farm and they are all very friendly and caring and if you ever get the opportunity to meet any of them you will know what I mean especially the older Mrs. Henley very sweet old lady just like her husband not saying that Stormy isnt sweet but Mrs Henley has a few years on her.LOL. Make sure you go all the way down to the farm and not just to the farm stand Not saying the farm stand isnt good but the extra mile is well worth the trip for the harvest. All year long if they have a growing season for something they have it growing. Hours are always subject to change to call first.. They take most form of payment including credit cards. They have portajohns for those emergency stops. In the fall they have a hayride to the pumpkin patch and on mother's day they have hanging flowers at reasonable prices for gifts. You can also buy some bedding plants or veggie plants for your own garden. "
  • Land of Promise Farms - Pecans
    3169 Land of Promise Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23457. Phone: (757) 421-3625. Email: [email protected]. Open: Call for appointment; Pecans only, only in season. Directions: See their website for directions. Payment: Cash, only.. TPick your own pecans in season, beginning in November. Must call for an appointment, as the farm's other businesses include raising show pigs for 4H-ers and sweet corn. The pecan orchard is behind the 3169 house in a fenced area. The pecan picking was bustling today because it had been listed in the newspaper, and the other farm with pecans in our area has not opened for pick your own this year. Pecans were $3 a pound, which is quite reasonable if you check the store price for pecans in shell.
    A visitor writes on November 19, 2014: "Mrs. Horsley called back promptly and was very gracious. We set up a time in the afternoon, and when I got there two other people were picking pecans. They are absolutely delicious and flawless and quite reasonably priced. Mrs. Horsley was very kind to me even though her whole family are Hokies and I am a Wahoo. This is a small part of their very large operation. It is great that they make their pecans available to us. We're planning on some pie for Thanksgiving! This was listed as Horsley's Blackwater Farm in a 2008 posting on the pickyourown.org website. The name (don't know if this is a change, but it's what's listed on the sign) is now Land of Promise Farms. Same phone number. "
