After quite a long silence we are back in touch to share with you what we've been up to. 2019 looks bright for Roan Highlands Farm. With two little farmers to raise and 26 acres to maintain we are shifting our farms focus just a little. We are no longer offering pick -your- own on the farm. However we do have another way for your to get the yummy summer berries and jam you have grown to love!
The next step in our vision of rural revitalization and community building has been to re-open a beloved local country store and rebrand it as Jack's Petrol & Provisions, located just above the State Park on your way up the mountain. Jack Barnett opened the store in 1956, and we are proud to be taking this Roan Mountain institution into the future.
This store is just down the road from our farm. You can expect to find our fresh picked raspberries and old fashioned jam there this summer. Among other offerings, Jack's will serve as our farm store, giving you convenient access to our farm produce and products throughout the season. Visit our website to order pre-picked berries or pick some up down at Jack's.
Jack's already offers some important staples - gourmet fresh made coffee, locally produced goods, hot food service, camping supplies and non ethanol fuel. And now RHF produce! We will be offering our apples down there in the fall.
This years apples have set really well! We are looking forward to offering you organic apples sold by the pound or bushel in the fall. Be on the look out for an order form coming in the next couple months.
Emmie joined our family last August and as many of you know two kids is a lot harder than just one. She is very adventurous, loves her big brother and is a ray of sunshine on any given day. Being outside and bath time are two of her favorite things, which is great because she loves to play in the dirt!
