Mary's Berries became an at home venture in 2000, when Pat, a landscaper, dropped the public landscaping part of the business and decided to spend the rest of his life at home just being a nurrseryman, as he loves to grow everything green!!!!I Mary was the encouragment along with part-time help as long as she was teaching. However, when she retired after 46 years in the classroom, they vamped up their farm to include Blueberry and BlackBerry plants, quail, various breeds of chickens, dressed birds, goats and an Austrailian shepherd named River! We not only grow produce and animals, but we help friends learn how to do what we do on our farm!
