From our fields, to your family
You Pick & We Pick Options
It is with a happy heart that we announce that Backyard Orchards is in the process of leasing the business to two wonderful men who will soon open Backyard Orchards Country Store and Bakery. They will still have all the great ice cream, fudge, fried pies plus much more. We are very excited for them and plan on helping them as much as possible.
We know you are now wondering “Well, what about the u-pick?”. We have also recently been blessed with a contract with the state for our peaches and blueberries for local food banks. This means that u-pick might be limited. I have to meet my quota first and if enough fruit is ripe, the new managers will open the fields up to u-pick. They will post this information on the Facebook page.
We will not have strawberries next Spring. With the recent higher cost in literally everything, it is no longer economically feasible for us.
We have loved every minute, even on the hottest and longest of days, getting to know our customers. We have learned so much from you and have enjoyed watching your families grow with ours. This has been a very difficult decision for us, but I am so happy that the Orchard will remain open and continue to grow.
We are still in the process of transitioning the businesses, but more info will follow soon. The phone number will remain the same so feel free to give them a call to check things out.
Phone #: 334-695-5875

Hours of Operation
Look for new hours to be posted soon.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support! We love our customers!
We try to grow everything that we sell.
It is impossible to grow everything so when I have to purchase produce
I go to other growers directly so I know they have safe and good quality produce. We make our own ice cream and fudge. We have the freedom to be creative with our flavors and flexibility to do special orders. We are family owned and operated which also gives us freedom in operations. We believe in the best customer service possible and want every customer to leave with a pleasant experience, a full tummy, and a little more knowledge about agriculture.
An American Family Farm
We are a working farm and are at the mercy of mother nature so when you visit please keep that in mind. When you visit we want you to see and experience what we did as children on our farm, so you can expect some hay bale climbing and tire swing fun. We like to educate children about agriculture and how important it is form them to know where their food comes from and how agriculture can effect their lives.
