Wonderful, the holiday season is here. We enjoyed meeting everyone that came out to the farm this year to pick muscadines, or visited us at the farmer’s market. We are looking forward to next year, and are excited we are expanding our pear orchard too.
As you are out and about during the holiday season, come see us at one of our tasting events. We wish you a blessed holiday season with your family and friends. We will be enjoying our children and grandchildren, and maybe taking a little rest before the new year.

~ ~ 100% Locally Grown Muscadine Juice ~ ~We’re on the road again, with our 100% naturally sweet muscadine juice. Muscadine juice is sweeter and not as heavy as other grape juice, all natural, no sugar added. And our customers’ reactions to tasting the juice for the first time makes us smile ~ “I remember eating muscadines, and the smell and the flavor, at my grandparents”… “a very distinct, sweet and earthy muscadine taste”… “good tasting and good for me”.
There are over 300 varieties of muscadines, and we grow two varieties right here in Rockingham County. Our purple 'Noble' muscadine makes our red juice, and our Carlos ‘bronze’ muscadine is an improved scuppernong variety. The scuppernong was the first grape to be cultivated in the United States, and comes from the oldest vine in the nation, the 400-year-old Mother Vine growing on Roanoke Island. Scuppernong was also made the state fruit in 2001.The muscadine skin is usually too thick to eat, and some people spit it out along with the seeds. But this is optional! Great taste, heart-healthy, with over seven times the concentration of resveratrol than other bunch grapes. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that may fight cancer and prevent heart disease, and a one cup serving of muscadines can double your daily intake of antioxidants.
So, our family works hard to harvest a few ton of muscadines, and then we process them into a naturally sweet juice that you can buy year round. Our vineyard is a member of “Got to be NC - Goodness Grows in NC”. And you know muscadine juice is the best when even our local and North Carolina wineries carry this ‘alcohol-free’ product for their favorite customers.
Locally grown or North Carolina grown, it’s a win-win for all muscadine growers and agriculture in our state.
