Mountain Meadows Farm

When we went to Pepper Place Farmers Market a few weeks ago we got some delicious strawberries. What drew me to these particular berries was the fact that they are grown without using any chemicals.

So I got my new neighbor, Suzanne, to ride out to the country with me to pick berries at Mountain Meadows Farm in Columbiana. Owner Jim Suttle describes himself as an Alabama Dirt Farmer and his slogan is “It’s all about the soil.”

We took a lot of back roads, depending solely on Flo, my phone’s GPS gal, to get us there. We were relieved and happy to see the sign for the farm and turned in.  Farmer Suttle had us follow his truck back to the berry patches and provided us with baskets to hold our berries.  (We also tasted a few as we went along the rows – so yummy!

For our return trip we took a different route that was less country roads and more highways. I am looking forward to going back next month when the blueberries and blackberries will be ready. Hopefully it will coincide with the time when some of his vegetables will also be ready.

If you like fresh, chemical free produce, check out Mountain Meadows Farm. Then, go back in December to get a fresh Christmas tree.
