Route 52 Farm Trail

There's a lot going on at Waterberry right now. We're excitedly getting ready for the first weekend of the Route 52 Farm Trail! The Route 52 farm trail is a a collaboration between several small family owned farms in our area. Each of the farms on the trail has a strong commitment to environmentally friendly, sustainable farming practices. All of the farms on the trail will be open to the public every Saturday in June and July from 8am-2pm. Our goal is to bring our customers the freshest, highest quality food possible. Waterberry will be selling lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, potted plants and flowers, fresh baked good, fresh eggs etc... All of our produce is grown without the use of herbicides or pesticides. If you live in the Wiregrass area, make plans to hit the Route 52 farm trail and visit all the participating farms. Get Real Food on Route 52!
